Since I don't know what the problem is I can't claim that the problem
I'm having is MG related, but configuration files does contains parts
where path is specified, so it's not impossible. 

However, weather it's the nginx or MG, it would be useful to potential
users (such as myself) to have howto containing nginx configuration when
subdirectory is used available on official MG wiki. This way, this
software is not usable to me and that's just a shame. 

Anyway, since you do know how to configure MG in subdirectory in lighty,
would you consider to share that informations on
mediagoblin.readthedocs.org so that someone interested in that kind of
setup can know what to do? I'm sure someone will find that useful.
