Deny rules not working - raw php files being served!

Hi all,

I’m using a pretty simple WordPress nginx config that is documented on
the
WordPress codex.

http://codex.wordpress.org/Nginx

All works fine except for 1 critical aspect.

The config uses a restrictions.conf which has some fairly simple rules
for
blocking unauthorized access to specific files and file patterns like
the
following:

Deny all attempts to access hidden files such as .htaccess, .htpasswd,

.DS_Store (Mac).

Keep logging the requests to parse later (or to pass to firewall

utilities
such as fail2ban)
location ~ /. {
deny all;
}

What I’ve found is rather than actually denying requests, raw php files
are
being served up via nginx - which is very odd.

Any ideas why this would be happening?

Ed
