Codeigniter nginx configuration in PHP 7.1 on Ubuntu server

I assume you have already nginx on your computer or server. And this is the configuration for your codeigniter application. This is the nginx configuration for your application.

server {
listen 8890;
server_name localhost;
root /usr/share/nginx/html/simpad;
autoindex on;
index index.php;

error_log /var/log/nginx/simpad-error.log;

location / {

try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php;

location = /index.php {

fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php/php7.1-fpm.sock;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME /usr/share/nginx/html/ci$fastcgi_script_name;
include fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_buffers 256 16k;
fastcgi_buffer_size 128k;
fastcgi_busy_buffers_size 256k;
fastcgi_temp_file_write_size 256k;

location ~ \.php$ {
return 444;

And then Restart your nginx : /etc/init.d/nginx restart.

Open your Codeigniter application configuration file on : application/config/config.php for update some configuration.

Change this configuration like this code :

$config[‘base_url’] = “”;

$config[‘index_page’] = “”;

And then run your codeigniter application on your browser.

if you have an error like this : Only variables should be assigned by reference on Loader.php on your codeigniter core you must open file on system/core/Common.php and change like this code :

function &is_loaded($class = ”)

If you have a question about the configuration please leave your comment.

Thank you

automount ntfs partition in your ubuntu 14.04

Do you want to automatically mount windows partition in ubuntu? read this tutorial to show how to do it.

For the first, open you terminal to check your system partition with run this command :

sudo blkid


And then you will see the device id and file system on your PC.

Next, run the command below to open the fstab with your favorite  editor. In this case, my favorite editor is nano, so i will type this command like this :



Next, add this line

UUID=xxxxxxxxxxx /mnt/ntfs-data ntfs users,defaults 0 0

ntfs-data is the name of directory used for your partition, you can give another name what you want. in this case i give name ntfs-data for the directory.


Save the fstab file.

After that, go to /mnt directory, and make a directory with name ntfs-data or  your own name of directory.


Next, change the owner of the mount point by running this command :

sudo chown <username> /mnt/ntfs-data

Replace <username> with your username in your PC


And then restart your PC and open your terminal and go to /mnt/ntfs-data to access your data from the other partition.

If you have any question or you have already succeeded to do this tutorial in your machine, give a comment for this post. 🙂 . Thank you.

how to create custom breadcrumb widget in yii framework

To make a custom breadcrumb in yii framework, try this step :

  1. we must create a new file BreadCrumb.php in your project folder, example :
    my-project\protected\components\BreadCrumb.php. And insert this code into the BreadCrumb.php file :

    class BreadCrumb extends CWidget {
         public $crumbs = array();
         public $delimiter = ' / ';
         public function run() {
  2. then create a new folder views in : my-project\protected\components\.

  3. make a new file breadCrumb_view.php in my-project\protected\components\views and insert this code to breadCrumb_view.php.

    <ul class="breadcrumb">
         foreach($this->crumbs as $crumb) {
            if(isset($crumb['url'])) {
                echo "<li>".CHtml::link($crumb['name'], $crumb['url'])."</li>";
            } else {
                echo "<li>".$crumb['name']."</li>";
            if(next($this->crumbs)) {
                echo $this->delimiter;

    in this example i use ul html tag for the breadcrumb. you can change the ul and li html tag to another html tag.

  4. and then you can use the breadcrumb in your view with insert this code :
    	$this->widget('application.components.BreadCrumb', array(
    	  'crumbs' => array(
    	    array('name' => 'Home', 'url' => array('site/index')),
    	    array('name' => 'Login'),
    	  'delimiter' => '&nbsp;', // if you want to change it

    and you can custom your delimiter in your breadcrumb.
