Setting up etherpad with basic auth

Problem: I need to use Etherpad but I don't want everyone on the internet to have access.


After installation, you’ll need to edit nginx nodejs configuration file.
It’s located at /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/nodejs

Add the highlighted lines to your config file.



Follow “Create the Password File Using the OpenSSL Utilities” section to create your htpasswd file.

Restart nginx after creating htpasswd file.

Port 443 is port forwarded from WAN to NAT. Port 80 can be disabled if needed.
