Deny all + Custom Error page

Hello,

I try to block wildcard sub domains as follows:

block wildcard

server {
server_name ~^(.*).example.com$ ;
root /usr/share/nginx/www;
error_page 403 /index.html;
allow 127.0.0.1;
deny all;
access_log off;
log_not_found off;
}

I always get the default “403 Forbidden” site of nginx.
When “deny all” is removed it work as expected.

Can anybody explain?
And does anybody know a workaround?

Best Regards;
Basti

Here is my solution:

server {
server_name ~^(.*).example.com$ ;
return 200;
deny all;
access_log off;
log_not_found off;
}

I’m sure there’s a precedence rule that’ll explain this but I don’t have
it
to hand.

However, have you considered merely telling that server{} to listen only
on
127.0.0.1?

You may also wish to look at the server_name documentation for the
shorthand of “*.foo.com” instead of the regex you’re using.

Finally, if your aim is just to deny requests for hosts you haven’t
explicitly configured elsewhere in nginx’s config file, I find the
following to be a useful catchall. Use it alongside well-defined
server_names in other server blocks.

server {
listen 80 default_server;
server_name _;
location / { return 404; }
}

HTH,
