I protected a folder using "location" and auth_basic, it works well but if I try to direct download a file inside the folder, it doesn't prompt me for login & password.

Of course, I tried to direct download the file without auth'ing to the folder :P

Here is my vhost :

server {
     location /folder {
        auth_basic "Administrator Login";
        auth_basic_user_file /path/to/htpasswd;
        autoindex on;
        autoindex_exact_size off;
        autoindex_localtime on;

Make sure you have auth_basic enabled in other locations which can be used to access files in the folder. Common error is to configure auth_basic for a location, while not protecting access to the same files via locations given by regular expressions. If in doubt, use the ^~ modifier to prevent checking regular expressions after the match, see docs for details.

You were right, I had an extra location matching the file pattern.

Thanks !
