Web Servers

All HTTP requests must be forwarded to a entry point (usually index.php).

Apache configuration

Ensure your .htaccess and index.php files are in the same public-accessible directory. The .htaccess file should contain this code:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule ^ index.php [QSA,L]

Make sure to enable Apache’s mod_rewrite module and your virtual host is configured with the AllowOverride option so that the .htaccess rewrite rules can be used.

Nginx configuration

This is an example Nginx virtual host configuration for the domain example.com. It listens for inbound HTTP connections on port 80. It assumes a PHP-FPM server is running on port 9000. You should update the server_name, error_log, access_log, and root directives with your own values. The root directive is the path to your application’s public document root directory; your Peak app’s index.php front-controller file should be in this directory.

server {
    listen 80;
    server_name example.com;
    index index.php;
    error_log /path/to/example.error.log;
    access_log /path/to/example.access.log;
    root /path/to/public;

    location / {
        try_files $uri /index.php$is_args$args;

    location ~ \.php {
        try_files $uri =404;
        fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
        include fastcgi_params;
        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
        fastcgi_param SCRIPT_NAME $fastcgi_script_name;
        fastcgi_index index.php;
