Need help with converting from Apache.

Hi All,

I have a site that uses phpcms - and the nginx setup for it is below - 
and it works.

server {
    listen   80;
    server_name ;
    root /var/www/;
    index index.php index.html index.htm;
    access_log /var/www/;

    # redirect server error pages to the static page /50x.html
    error_page   500 502 503 504  /50x.html;

    # send  (*.htm)  to /parser/parser.php?file=%1
    location ~* \.htm$ {
       rewrite ^(.*\.htm)$ /parser/parser.php?file=$1;
    # all .php requests to fastcgi
    location ~ \.php$ {
        include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;
    #  request password for stats
    location ^~ /usage/ {
        auth_basic "Hello, please login";
        auth_basic_user_file /var/www/;

When apache was serving the site, the /parser directory had a .htaccess 
file in it that stopped any files being served, but it did not stop the 
for /parser/parser.php?params  being actioned via the rewrite.

How can I add the same here?



p.s nginx version  0.6.35
