How can I find out if nginx actually includes basic auth?

I cannot see it in the module list.

This is the module: http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_auth_basic_module.html

nginx version:

root@ip-172-31-36-204:/var/www# nginx -v
nginx version: nginx/1.14.0 (Ubuntu)

Ubuntu version:

root@ip-172-31-36-204:/var/www# lsb_release -a

You posted the solution yourself. That's the way.

If you can't use the http_auth_request_module, then you have 2 Options (I can see):

  1. Compile nginx from source and include the module
  2. Compile only the module and put it in /usr/lib/nginx/modules you can get the sourcecode directly from the nginx-Repo or the Github Mirror
