Hi Francis It was from nginx http server

The problem i've been having after looking in the error logs,is that
it's still trying to find /admin/ in the default html root. I've tried
new locations, new roots inside these new locations for /admin/, and
now ive tried alias. All have been 404 Not Found due to nginx
searching for these paths in root html; ..Any ideas how i can write
this? Here's is my default setup, how could i create an alternative
path from the root.

    server {
        listen       80;
        server_name  localhost;
        root   html;
        #charset koi8-r;

        #access_log  logs/host.access.log  main;

Also i don't know how this message will turn out, i only recieve daily
digests so i had to reply to the digest and not individual the mail
itself. Is there a way to stop recieving nginx mail via digests and
just recieve each individual mail?
