Password protecting folder breaks PHP within that folder

I’m trying to password protect a folder using htpasswd, works fine and
asks for a l/p, however php in that particular folder refuses to work.
PHP works anywhere else but the password protected location. Once I
comment out the password protected location and restart nginx it’s fine
again. Wondering if someone can assist?

nginx.conf is here: http://raab.ftw.net.nz/nginx.conf

That works brilliantly, thanks for that :slight_smile:

Cheers,
