"Access denied." on certain files

See original GitHub issue

Ever since removing the PHP plugin and installing the PHP5.6 and PHP7.0 plugin I have been having issues with not being able to view certain files. I have attempted to set security.limit_extensions but this does not resolve the problem.

2016/05/12 12:05:08 [error] 7059#7059: *26 FastCGI sent in stderr: "Access to the script '/srv/example/index.txt' has been denied (see security.limit_extensions)" while reading response header from upstream, client:, server:, request: "GET /index.txt HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/var/run/ajenti-v-php7.0-fcgi-360-php7.0-fcgi-0.sock:", host: ""

Examples: works (contains index.php) works does not work does not work does not work (contains index.php) works (notice the trailing /) works

No configuration has been done other than adding PHP 7.0 (alternatively 5.6) FastCGI to Content and attempting to set security.limit_extensions

Hi @Ardakilic, thanks for the help I sort it out although the answer sounds simple. You’re right on a fresh installed ajenti, set [^/].php(/|$) and regex in the content type is enough to make it work (Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS). I didn’t notice the error.log changed from see security.limit_extensions error to 13 permission denied until this morning. This is the test server, so I copied some site from the /srv to this test server and I am quite sure I’ve done the ownership and permission thing, checked by ls -l. I deleted the copied data and created the directory from ajenti general directly and uploaded file by FTP and then everything works fine. I don’t understand why but hope some one can point it out to me. No need to give +x to files as somewhere mentioned that.
