Description

This does not work:

    location / {
        limit_except OPTIONS {
            auth_basic "Access is restricted.";
            auth_basic_user_file /srv/app/www/htpasswd;
        }
        try_files $uri $uri/ @app;
    }

    location @app {
        include uwsgi_params;
        uwsgi_pass unix:///run/uwsgi/app/app/socket;
    }

$ curl -ski https://localhost -X OPTIONS
HTTP/1.1 200 OK

$ curl -ski -u username:password https://localhost -X GET
HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found

error.log:
[error] 23859#0: *25 "/var/www/site/index.html" is not found (2: No such file or directory), client: 127.0.0.1, server: localhost, request: "GET / HTTP/1.1", host: "localhost"

But this does work:

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ @app;
    }

    location @app {
        limit_except OPTIONS {
            auth_basic "Access is restricted.";
            auth_basic_user_file /srv/app/www/htpasswd;
        }
        include uwsgi_params;
        uwsgi_pass unix:///run/uwsgi/app/app/socket;
    }

Previously I had:

    auth_basic "Access is restricted.";
    auth_basic_user_file /srv/app/www/htpasswd;

    location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ @app;
    }

    location @app {
        include uwsgi_params;
        uwsgi_pass unix:///run/uwsgi/app/app/socket;
    }

This works too with the exception that OPTIONS requires a username and password.

Please note that the version that works leaves static content unprotected. This is not the behavior I want. Thanks.

This is basically identical to the same problem with if, see #86.
