As it shown in the subject, I really don't know where & how I should paste this piece of code to restrict others from accessing a folder called "data".

location ^~ /data {
  deny all;
}

Hope someone can help. Thanks you all!

Hi,

you tagged your question as htaccess, NGINX does not have a .htaccess file.

Please look into how to add this to your sites NGINX conf file:

Hi,

I'm sorry for that wrong tagging. Actually, I'm just a beginner and found those links hard to follow since they use samples while (I was looking for something direct like the exact path file and block to edit) after installing WordPress through Webinoly.

I need to add this exact snippet which will restrict the data folder that is located inside a subfolder called "rainloop" of my root domain:

location ^~ /data {
  deny all;
}

Hope I explained it well this time.

Hi, you need to gain a better understanding of NGINX as Webinoly and your question put you clearly on a DIY path. Please read and understand that article, it will benefit you later.

Please read up on NGINX, there is no shortcut to learning.

Short answer: Find your sites conf file and add it in there.

/etc/nginx/sites-available/example.com

server {
        listen 80 default_server;
        listen [::]:80 default_server;

        root /var/www/html;
        index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;

        server_name _;

        location / {
                try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
        }
}
