    Hi Kailash,

    I have an nginx ssl proxy with varnish and apache2 and it won’t work with sendy so I am trying to figure out how to add a block to the nginx config to serve the sendy directory directly from nginx without proxying.

    Do you know how to do this? I have tried adding a location block but it just gives me 404 errors, I have php5-fpm and I’ve tested it fine on another domain so I must be getting the config wrong.
