Create wp-multi.conf for my WordPress Multi Site setup:

log_not_found off;

rewrite ^.*/files/(.*)$ /wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 last;
if (!-e $request_filename) {
rewrite ^(.+)$ /index.php?q=$1 last;
}

location / {
try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php?$args;
}

location ~ \.php$ {
include fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
}

Created php.conf for basic PHP setup for a site:

location ~ \.php$ {
include fastcgi_params;
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
}
