Good catch on the root declaration. Actually I declared it twice. Once
under server and once under location. I got rid of the declaration
under location since that is the wrong place.

So it is now:
server{
root /usr/share/nginx/html/mydomain/public_html;
location / {
if ($badagent) { return 403; }
}
location = /feeds {
try_files $uri $uri.xml $uri/ ;
}
}

The "=" should force an exact match, but the badagent map is
checked.

Absolutely the badagent check under location / is being triggered.
Everything works if I comment out the check.

The URL to request the XML file is domain.com/feeds/file.xml .
It is located in /usr/share/nginx/html/mydomain/public_html/feeds .

Here is the access.log file. First line is with the badagent check
skipped. Second line is with it enable.
200 xxx.58.22.151 - - [10/Jan/2019:02:07:42 +0000] "GET /feeds/file.xml HTTP/1.1" 3614 "-" "-" "-"
403 xxx.58.22.151 - - [10/Jan/2019:02:08:38 +0000] "GET /feeds/file.xml HTTP/1.1" 169 "-" "-" "-"
I'm using the RSS reader Akregator in this case. Some readers work fine
since they act more like browsers.
