    Just noticed I had } in wrong place, but nginx was working and page was working.

    I think this (for example) should not work.
    Code:
     location / {
        rewrite ^ /index.php$uri;
        include /usr/local/nginx/conf/php-pool2.conf;
    
      location ~ ^/(?:build|tests|config|lib|3rdparty|templates|data)/ {
            deny all;
        }
    }
    
    How nginx reads that kind of configuration? Feels like it read normally like separate location blocks. Is that somehow allowed way even I didn't find any similar by googleing..?

    server {
    .
    .
    .
    location / {
    rewrite ^ /index.php$uri;
    include /usr/local/nginx/conf/php-pool2.conf;

    location ~ ^/(?:build|tests|config|lib|3rdparty|templates|data)/ {
    deny all;
    }
    location ~ ^/(?:\.|autotest|occ|issue|indie|db_|console) {
    deny all;
    }

    location ~ ^/(?:index|remote|public|cron|core/ajax/update|status|ocs/v[12]|updater/.+|ocs-provider/.+)\.php(?:$|/) {
    fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.*)$;
    include fastcgi_params;
    fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
    fastcgi_param PATH_INFO $fastcgi_path_info;
    fastcgi_param HTTPS on;
    #Avoid sending the security headers twice
    fastcgi_param modHeadersAvailable true;
    fastcgi_param front_controller_active true;
    fastcgi_pass php-handler;
    fastcgi_request_buffering off;
    }

    location ~ ^/(?:updater|ocs-provider)(?:$|/) {
    try_files $uri/ =404;
    index index.php;
    }

    # Adding the cache control header for js and css files

    That is a valid way of configuring and works just fine if it's as intended. For example limiting the scope of a location regex match to the outer location match location instead of globally within a site.

    Thank You for the help! Again :)
    Do you have any link to a site where's more information about that? It may be usefull to know more about it.

    I've been so tired and busy lately, so that could be intended, but I just can't remember why. So I bet it's an error... :oops:
    Thankfully this is just a hobby. So no angry customers or bosses. :LOL:

    BTW.
    I'm having strange triangles here.
