Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have the following nginx location blocks:

location /publish/domain.io.php {
  allow 127.0.0.1;
  deny all;
}

location ~\.php {
  try_files $uri =404;
  fastcgi_index index.php;
  fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
  fastcgi_intercept_errors on;
  fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
  include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
}

The problem is that the location block /publish/domain.io.php does not seem to be executing. I can call the php script domain.io.php from any host.

Ideas? Thanks much.

Use the = location prefix to determine exact match. As it is written in nginx documentation: "If an exact match is found, the search terminates."

So, your location should look like:

location = /publish/domain.io.php {
  allow 127.0.0.1;
  deny all;              # Gives 403
}

or

location = /publish/domain.io.php {
  internal;              # Gives 404
}
