    Hello

    The WordPress registration redirects to the protected backend after the new user key in his username password. I disabled all plugins and still persistent, is it related to any security rule on centminmod?

    Nginx 1.13.x

    you'd need to remove the nginx vhost's wp-login.php file location context's password protection settings and restart nginx

    I think centiminmod aut-WordPress need to remove this, in websites that allow user registrations, like it appears on the prompt when installing the domain

    -moreover how to protect the backend login, shall we restrict the wp-admin/ folder? or it will give the same error?

    123.09beta01 centmin.sh menu option 22 prompts you if you want to remove wp-login.php password protection ;)

    AFIAK you can't password protect wp-admin, without doing it for wp-login.php too
