Root endpoint returning 404 error

Version: vanilla-2.8.1

I have set-up my Vanilla instance with Nginx, but for some reason the root endpoint ( is not working, whereas the `/vanilla` endpoint ( does work.

The `/` route is defined in my Nginx config (below), but it still returns a 404. Is there something I'm missing?


  • I can't paste my Nginx config - it keeps saying I've been blocked.

  • Here's an image of it instead...

  • I fixed this by changing the `/` endpoint from `try_files $uri @vanilla;` to `try_files $uri $uri/ @vanilla;`
