  listen 80;
  root /var/www/atrocore.local; ## Specify your document root
  server_name apropim.local;  ## Replace apropim.local to your domain name
  server_tokens off; ## Don't show the nginx version number

  client_max_body_size 50M;

  location ~ (composer\.json)$ {
    deny all;

  location ~ /\.ht {
    deny all;

  location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/ @router;
    index index.html index.php;
    error_page 403 = @router;

  location @router {    
    rewrite ^/(.*)$ /index.php?treoq=$1;

    fastcgi_keep_conn on;
    fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php-fpm.sock;
