How does 'locate' work?

October 21, 2009 04:50PM
Hi! I want to protect a directory and its content. The directory is located in the server in the dir:

/var/www/site.com/public/documents/

So, i have:

location /public/documents/ {
root /var/www/site.com/;
auth_basic "Access restricted.";
auth_basic_user_file /private/pass;
}

The thing is, i've been toying with the location and root options, with and without ^ and seems that i can not frigging protect the directory. So, can someone explain me with practical examples, how does the location and root parameters work? I read the wiki and can't get it to work properly.

Thanks a LOT!
