    Hi ..

    Got my site up and running and fine.. Then I did transfer my older forum over as at folder in my public root. And here is what I'm not fully understand..

    See - I got this in my nginx conf file for the site:

    Code:
            location /admin.php {
                    include /usr/local/nginx/conf/php_disabled_openbasedir.conf;
                    allow 127.0.0.1;
                    allow x.x.x.x;
                    deny all;
            }
    
            location /install/ {
                    include /usr/local/nginx/conf/php_disabled_openbasedir.conf;
                    allow 127.0.0.1;
                    allow x.x.x.x;
                    deny all;
            }
    
    And those is working as expected. Now, back to the transfered old site in the folder in public..

    Right below the /install/ part I did another part like this:

    Code:
            location /anotherforum/ {
                    include /usr/local/nginx/conf/php_disabled_openbasedir.conf;
                    allow 127.0.0.1;
                    allow x.x.x.x;
                    deny all;
            }
    
    Then I executed ngrestart - but if I go to the website/anotherforum/ - then I'm allowed and not as expected, not allowed.. I did come from another external IP not in the allow IP part..

    What is it I don't understand here - any hints on where to look?
