Hello FreeBSD support,

im having a little problem with website. Im using nginx on system FreeBSD 11.2. 

The problem is simple, when i click on any button, it's supposed to redirect me on another site, instead of it, it downloads an index.php and phpinfo, and that's bad, would love your help with fixing my issue as soon as possible, thanks :) 

My nginx config


    server {
    server_name mydomain.com www.mydomain.com; # use domain name if you have here
    access_log  /var/log/nginx/1.access.log;
    error_log  /var/log/nginx/1.error.log;
    index index.php index.html index.htm;

    root /web/mydomain.com;
    # php config let nginx talk to php socket
    location ~ \.php$ {
    try_files $uri =404;
    fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
    fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php72-fpm.sock;
    fastcgi_index index.php;
    fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
    include fastcgi_params;

Typed it wrong, the web by itself is alright and index.php or phpinfo starts properly, but when i click on something on my site, it downloads, not redirect

This is not a bug in FreeBSD itself, it's an nginx configuration issue.
I suggest you look in the FreeBSD Forums for help: https://forums.freebsd.org
