how to protect a django web app deployed in elastic beanstalk docker nginx using password

I’ve a django web application hosted in AWS Elastic Beanstalk with Docker and Nginx. I am using supervisor to start nginx and uwsgi. Need to protect it the website using password. I’ve tried using .htaccess.

htpasswd -cb /etc/nginx/.htpasswd admin admin 

and added the nginx config with

  • Django - default port 0 instead of 3306 - Can't connect to MySQL server on '' (61)
  • Have created a docker that installs nginx, python, uwsgi and django. How do I test it within a VM?
  •  location / {
       auth_basic "Restricted";
       auth_basic_user_file  /etc/nginx/.htpasswd;
       uwsgi_pass unix:/var/sockets/api.sock;
       include    /home/docker/uwsgi_params; 

    It’s working but its asking password repeatedly. Usually htaccess only asks password once in session. But it asks for username and password every time we click one field or button. Is there any way to fix it?
