Mir Nazim asked:
I have nginx configured to serve a single page React.js app as static content. react-router handles routing in browser.
To make it possible for users to enter all urls (not just the domain
example.com, but also urls like
example.com/some/other/path, etc.) directly in the address bar, I am doing,
error_page 404 /index.html
This works perfectly fine everywhere except in Internet Explorer. IE shows 404 page for this.
How do I configure nginx, such that it serves index.html, if the request path cannot be matched to a file in the root directory.
This is a job for
try_files $uri /index.html;
$uri will load any static resources if they are present and accessible; for any inaccessible URLs,
/index.html will be served (with a 200).
