Any idea how to redirect to home page on 403 & 404 errors in NGINX with Apache?  PHP-FPM is enabled but seems to still follow apache directives if that makes difference.

Make an error page that does it.  This is in my .htaccess page for Apache.  I don't know what nginx requires.
ErrorDocument 400 /400.html
ErrorDocument 401 /401.html
ErrorDocument 403 /403.html
ErrorDocument 404 /404.html
ErrorDocument 500 /500.html

Open in new window

@Dave what if I want to redirect the 403 to another domain? How would you do that in htaccess?

for example I'm blocking certain ip addresses, the get 403 error, great.. but I want them to redirect to www.mydomain.com for example instead of getting the 403 error.

Just do the redirect in the 403 error page.  You can make it say whatever you want.  They don't have to know they got there because of an error.
