I am trying to limit the file types that can be proxied from our backend server. I am trying to limit it to jpg, gif, png, css and then two other specific files - Thumbnail.ashx and hearbeat.htm. I am also hoping to limit access to only certain referers.

I have tried this code which works fine for the jpg, gif, png, css but is not working for the heartbeat.htm file. It gives a 404 on all .htm files including heartbeat.htm.

location ~* (\.jpg|\.png|\.gif|\.css|ThumbNail\.ashx|heartbeat\.htm)$ {


if ($invalid_referer) {
return 404;

proxy_pass http://exampleimages_com;

Any help would be appreciated.
