Customer Question

Nginx configuration problem.
Running wordpress and phpmyadmin under a single server context.
I'm using a symbolic link to obfuscate the URL for phpmyadmin. I want to be able to navigate to the URL (ie: and have it auto redirect to (internal redirect). So far, so good.
Once I log into phpmyadmin, Nginx redirects to the root of the domain. So, the requested URL that Nginx returns is:
Using LiveHeaders Firefox Plugin to get running header info. Here's the applicable part where Nginx returns 302, and changes the URL to the root (removing the "noneofyourbusiness" part of the URL). I can't understand why Nginx is returning a 302 and removing the "noneofyourbusiness" part of he URL.

Is PHPMD set to accepted unauthenticated requests? The source refer must be set to passive.

Sorry, I'm not familiar with PHPMD. Is that PHP Mess Detector? This is a standard LEMP installation on a digitalocean droplet. Ubuntu 16.04 with Nginx 1.10.0 (Ubuntu)
