Using other server configuration files

We have seen how to use the features available in the Apache .htaccess file that HTML5 Boilerplate comes with. But there is a repository of configuration files for other kinds of servers such as Ngnix, Node, Google App Engine, IIS, and Lighttpd. The following table contains the configuration filenames and their corresponding server software:
