Hello Mister. I'm using Laragon and install lumen and created an app. But I cannot access the routes with normal servel path. I mean, in the example from Lumen, in order to use your api, you should run a php built-in server, but I'd like to just use the normal server. The problem is that with normal path (from nginx) I cannot access the routes, but php built-in I do.

I think is because the .httaccess file that is made for Apache, isn't it? 😞 ... So, Would this file help me to use the routes from nginx?

Thanks for replying

I could not find any .htaccess file by default created by Lumen. Nevertheless look closely if you configured the root ...; correctly. This should point to the Lumen directory slash public. So. /var/www/yourdirectory/or/sub/directory/public. The public folder is created by Lumen during setup. In fact there only exist 1 single index.php file within this public folder.

You also may need to change the location / { part, let's say you have an API that should be access from You may want to use location /api { here.

Finally, /index.php?$query_string; could be right, yet again depending on the root. This can also change to eg. /api/index.php?$query_string;

Are you got mine working example:
