Suppose you have a standard WordPress project like the one in this repo. Clone your repo.

git clone

Create Nginx config

    server_name wordpress-deployer-example.test www.wordpress-deployer-example.test;
    root /Users/sajad/sites/wordpress-deployer-example/;

    index index.php index.html;

    location / {
      try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$query_string;

    location ~ \.php$ {
      fastcgi_pass; # Assuming PHP-FPM is listening on port 9000
      fastcgi_index  index.php;
      include        fastcgi.conf;

    location ~ /\.ht {
        deny all;
