SaturdayMP Show #23: Adding Basic Auth to NGINX Passenger Docker (Part 3)

In this stunning conclusion to the 3 part series I finally get HTTP Basic Authentication working. Including merging my changes into the main branch in GitLab and making sure it works in staging and production in Render. The video is so long because I made dumb mistake 10 minutes in.

Spoiler: When using the Passenger Docker image it’s really important you don’t delete:

RUN rm -f /etc/service/nginx/down
