There is no real difference between configuring this at location
or at server level - as long as requests to
"/path/to/authRequestScript.php" are properly handled. In your
case, "403 Forbidden" suggests they aren't handled properly - this
may happen, e.g., because you incorrecly specified URI (note that
the parameter of auth_request is URI, not file path), or because
the php script isn't properly run, or because the script itself
does a wrong thing. The error log may have some details for you,
try looking into it.

Note well that if you want "the usual authentication mecanism",
then auth_request is probably not for you, and you should use
auth_basic instead, see here:

http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_auth_basic_module.html

The auth request module is only needed when you want to code some
custom authentication yourself.
