Nginx - hotlinking

Hi Igor S.,

Could you please help how to stop badguys from hotlinking my images.

I try a lot of code and nothing happens

I don’t know which file to edit

I use this code in sudo nano /usr/local/nginx/sites-available/

Stop deep linking or hot linking

location /uploads/ {
valid_referers none blocked;
if ($invalid_referer) {
return 403;

But I’m always have an error.

I’ll appreciate your help.

thank you very much!

Try posting your full config, it must be matching another location
Otherwise it looks fine.
