nginx/ubuntu: Basic authentication access

# =============== first let''s create user/password: # 1: user $> sudo sh -c "echo -n 'sammy:' >> /etc/nginx/.htpasswd" # 2: passsord $> sudo sh -c "openssl passwd -apr1 >> /etc/nginx/.htpasswd" # You can repeat this process for additional usernames. You can see how the usernames and encrypted passwords are stored within the file by typing: # let's see what we did: $> cat /etc/nginx/.htpasswd # Output (something like) # sammy:$apr1$wI1/T0nB$jEKuTJHkTOOWkopnXqC1d1 # then, we need to add configuration: # at /etc/nginx/sites-available/default (or whatever your configuration is): server { listen 80 default_server; listen [::]:80 default_server ipv6only=on; root /usr/share/nginx/html; index index.html index.htm; server_name localhost; location /myrestrictedfolder { #<--- new here rewrite ^(.*[^/])$ $1/ permanent; #<--- new here auth_basic "Restricted Content"; #<--- new here auth_basic_user_file /etc/nginx/.htpasswd; #<--- new here } #<--- new here location / { try_files $uri $uri/ =404; } } # then restart nginx daemon: $> sudo service nginx restart #you will be asked for basic user/password when entering: http://localhost/myrestrictedfolder/
