    I'm on the latest ISPconfig version with all updates from jessie applied...
    When I go to "Sites > Web Access > Protected Folders" and "Sites > Web Access > Protected Folder Users" and setup a folder and a user it never make's it to the nginx config.

    So I added protection manually, but then I've issue's like:
    nginx: [emerg] duplicate location "/" in /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/1..
    So I can only protect subfolders!

    How can I make that work?

    For the first problem, please see here for debug instructions:

    The flder protection is only for sub folders, not for /.

    For the second problem:

    Use the


    directive in yozur custom config to merge your additional directives into the / location. examole:

    location / {###merge###
       index index.php

    Hi Till,
    thx for your fast reply... Attached you'll find the expected debug output.

    But if it's only for subfolders why can I enter "/" to the field?
