SaturdayMP Show #21: Adding Basic Auth to NGINX Passenger Docker (Part 1)

In this episode I explain and then start to add HTTP Basic Authentication to the Saturday MP website which is a Ruby on Rails application hosted on a Passenger Docker image. As usual I ran into some trouble and at the end of the video figured out I should use the envsubst command to dynamically set the Basic Auth, and other values, in the NGINX config.
