Webfinger & Nodeinfo (Rocky Linux 8.7 & Nginx)

Been trying to figure this out off and on for a few weeks when time permits.

Receive the following errors:

  • Your web server is not properly set up to resolve “/.well-known/webfinger”
  • Your web server is not properly set up to resolve “/.well-known/nodeinfo”

Below is my nginx config (note document root is /usr/share/nginx/nextcloud)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

# Specify how to handle directories -- specifying `/index.php$request_uri`
# here as the fallback means that Nginx always exhibits the desired behaviour
# when a client requests a path that corresponds to a directory that exists
# on the server. In particular, if that directory contains an index.php file,
# that file is correctly served; if it doesn't, then the request is passed to
# the front-end controller. This consistent behaviour means that we don't need
# to specify custom rules for certain paths (e.g. images and other assets,
# `/updater`, `/ocm-provider`, `/ocs-provider`), and thus
# `try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php$request_uri`
# always provides the desired behaviour.
