Nginx : Enable Userdir2021/04/08

Enable Userdir for common users to open their site in the home directories.
[1] Configure Nginx. Add settings into [server] section of a site definition you'd like to set.
[root@www ~]#
vi /etc/nginx/conf.d/ssl.conf
# add into [server] section

server {
    location ~ ^/~(.+?)(/.*)?$ {
        alias /home/$1/public_html$2;
        index  index.html index.htm;

[root@www ~]#
systemctl restart nginx

[2] If SELinux is enabled, change boolean setting.
[root@www ~]#
setsebool -P httpd_enable_homedirs on

[3] Create a test page with a common user to make sure it works normally.
[cent@www ~]$
chmod 711 /home/cent

[cent@www ~]$
mkdir ~/public_html

[cent@www ~]$
chmod 755 ~/public_html

[cent@www ~]$
vi ~/public_html/index.html
