Support » Plugin: BuddyPress Docs » publicly accessible due to nginx issue

  • Hi,

    I allready posted a question about this matter.

    I Need the nginx to be on, but i still get the error message. I contacted Siteground about this issue several times. Unfortunately they cannot do the sollution what is given in the wiki.

    Do you know another sollution? or way around? Because now I cannot use the plugin and I need it.

    Thanks in advantage

    Hello – Unfortunately, I’m not aware of a method to protect direct downloads on nginx, aside from what’s described in the wiki.

    Ok and do you know if i can exclude them being served to the nginx part??

    Otherwise holymoly what a mess… for my expensive hosting plan.

    And another question. The attachment is not visible for users who are not in the group.. so only group members are seeing them.

    Is it, with the nginx that the docs will be visible in google when people search? or, is it only visible when you have the direct link to the attachment?

    Because when you need the link to the attachment then the problem is a bit smaller.

    And, as a work around, is it possible to add password protection to the attachment. So when people want to download it, they need a pincode or something else.

    I cant imagine i am the only one with this problem…

    and the bad thing is, youre plugin is the best since there is no other one.

    If the php-based redirect protection isn’t working for attachments, then, no, you can’t add some other protection for them using php.
