    Hi there
    First of all: I'm new to Nginx, so excuse silly questions. I was searching the web for two days now, but I couldn't find an appropriate solution, so maybe you can help me.

    I've tried to install a Joomla 3.6.5 on a Ubuntu 16.04 with Nginx (ISPConfig 3.1). First, I got 404 Errors with the main page (admin pages worked). As I've found out, it had to do with the rewrite rules manually because I can't use .htaccess on nginx, so I had to put in some nginx directives for the vhost in ISPConfig (under the Options tab). So far so good.

    But as soon as I switch to the maintance mode, I got en server unavailable error (503). So I think, maybe I haven't found out the real solution. Maybe there is someone out, who's dealt with the same problems? Maybe there is somewhere a manual for Nginx and Joomla that I haven't found yet..? :)

    Thanks in advance and so looong
