Auth_basic & avoiding duplication in conf file


#1

Hi,

Sorry if this is a faq. I started using v0.6.32 and I have to turn on
/ off auth based on the url.

I have something like:

server {
auth_basic …

location ~* jpeg {
}

location /home/return {
    auth_basic off
}

location / {
    several_config_lines
}

}

The problem is, I would like “involved_config” to apply to
“/home/return” as well, but I don’t want to copy it there.

I can’t move it to server, because it shouldn’t apply to other
location directives (eg jpeg).

Is there a clean way around it?

Thanks,

You can put it in an include and then include yourauthconf.conf;

That’s the quick and dirty idea…
