Basic auth not working with rewrite

Basic auth not working with rewrite
October 11, 2016 11:20PM
I need to protect one directory with the basic auth and rewrite all urls inside this directory only.

I have the following config:

location /admin/ {
auth_basic "Secure area";
auth_basic_user_file .htpasswd;
rewrite ^(.*)$ /admin/index.php last;
}

However, basic auth not working. If I comment rewrite rule it starts working.

How to fix it?

Try 'break'.

Thanks. It started working but when I try to reload the page, a file-save dialog appears. What could be the reason of the problem?

Sounds like a PHP issue, it should be passed to a php handler but is seen as downloadable.

PHP is working fine when I use 'last'.

Php config section looks as follows:

location ~ \.php$ {
try_files $uri =404;
fastcgi_split_path_info ^(.+\.php)(/.+)$;
fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php5-fpm.sock;
fastcgi_index index.php;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
include fastcgi_params;
}

Please advise.

Look at the logfiles to see the path and php filename which is passed on, might be the path has changed without php.ini having an entry for that path.

It seems that php section is not even accessed when the 'break' rule is present.
This is my php-fpm access log section config:

access.log = /var/log/php5-fpm.access.log
access.format = "%t %R %f \"%m %r%Q%q\" %s %{mili}dms %{kilo}Mkb %C%%"
catch_workers_output = yes

It collects requests when 'last' is present, but does not show anything when 'break' is in action.
I googled and it seems that using break is the reason of the problem as it breaks the locaiton lookup.
I think there should be a different soution, Any suggestions?
