So... i made the plunge to nginx on my personal server. I followed the instructions for enabling permalinks for my 2 wordpress sites.
One of my sites is OK without a hitch. The other one still has problems however..the main page will load but any other pages in categories or links will produce a 404 not found error.
The error logs have a bunch of these listed:
2010/11/15 17:04:20 [error] 1494#0: *968 open() [my website directory listing here]
Going into the wordpress admin pages is no problem for site #2
Any one have any suggestions on how to fix this?
