Htacces for Rest & OAuth access

Go to solution Solved by phreezie,

Recommended Posts


I'm trying to access the Rest & OAuth menu in the ACP, but it's asking me to put a htacces file in the api directory.

I did it and renamed it .htaccess as asked but I still get the screen asking me to download it and put it in the api directory.

I have no idea how to resolve this.

Best regards

The problem might be that I use nginx which is not supporting htaccess files.

Can I have some help to convert what's inside this file to nginx config ? I'm pretty new into nginx and that would help me a lot :

<IfModule mod_setenvif.c>
SetEnvIf Authorization .+ HTTP_AUTHORIZATION=$0
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
Options -MultiViews
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /api/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule .* index.php [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization},L]

This works for me when developing locally:

location / {

    location /api/ {
        if (!-e $request_filename){
              rewrite ^/api/(.*)$ /api/index.php;

    if (!-e $request_filename){
         rewrite ^(.*)$ /index.php;

    try_files $uri $uri/ =404;

location ~ \.php$ {
    include fastcgi-php.conf;
