Redirect adds index.php to the url and redirects to wrong controller / action

Hi,

I have the following redirect: $this->response->redirect('unit/index'); this redirects to http://dev.example/index.phpunit/index when changing the redirect to: $this->response->redirect('/unit/index'); the page goes to: http://dev.example/index.php/unit/index basically the redirect is adding index.php (which loads the default IndexController) into the url can anyone advise why this happening? I am using nginx and my host config file is as follows:

server {
    # Port 80 will require Nginx to be started with root permissions
    # Depending on how you install Nginx to use port 80 you will need
    # to start the server with `sudo` ports about 1000 do not require
    # root privileges
    # listen      80;

    listen        80;
    server_name   dev.example;

Hi, you need to make changes to your config file:

'baseUri'        => preg_replace('/public([\/\\\\])index.php$/', '', $_SERVER["PHP_SELF"])

to

'baseUri'        => '/'

or in services.php file

        $di->set('url',
            function () {
                $url = new UrlResolver();

                $url->setBaseUri("/");

                return $url;
            }
        );
