    Hi

    I try to password protect a folder using:

    Code:
    python /usr/local/nginx/conf/htpasswd.py -c -b /usr/local/nginx/conf/htpasswdnew usernamehere passwordhere
    and then add the code to domain config file: mydomain.com.conf under the:

    Code:
      # Enable for vBulletin usage WITHOUT vbSEO installed
       try_files        $uri $uri/ /index.php;
    
      }
    like:

    Code:
    location ^~/admin/ {
    auth_basic "Private";
    auth_basic_user_file /usr/local/nginx/conf/htpasswdnew;
    }

    And then i restart nginx and go to path and add the user and pass and then when is accepted it just download the php file and not open it on browser :(

    you'd need to include the php.conf include file within the protection location context

    Code:
    location ^~/admin/ {
    auth_basic "Private";
    auth_basic_user_file /usr/local/nginx/conf/htpasswdnew;
    include /usr/local/nginx/conf/php.conf;
    }
