The HTTP server section

The HTTP server section, or HTTP configuration context, is available unless you have built NGINX without the HTTP module (--without-http). This section controls all the aspects of working with the HTTP module, and will probably be the one that you will use the most.

The configuration directives found in this section deal with handling HTTP connections. As such, there are quite a number of directives defined by this module We will divide these directives up by type, to be able to talk about them more easily.

Client directives

This set of directives deals with the aspects of the client connection itself, as well as with different types of clients.
