Nginx /.well-known location never matched while using Django???

So Im using Nginx 1.10.3, django and letsencrypt. I have this block

  location /.well-known {
    alias /var/www/;
    allow all;

Which is funny because i have similar config on my test server, but nginx 1.6.2.

Can anyone assist me with this because I’ve already spent hours and got no result.

Appreciate it!

Oh, forgot to mention in desc. This location never gets matched/hit. I’ve tried to replace the code inside with “return”/redirect statement, but nothing happened.

This route instead of nginx, gets handled by Django.
