Discussion on: Nginx concepts I wish I knew years ago

Thank you for the post, I'll use it as a reference whenever I need to work with NGINX.

Some minor thoughts: although it's probably intuitive to more experienced devs, I think it might be helpful to point out that NGINX will automatically serve static files marked as index.html. Also, in my head it makes more sense to initially show the location block without defining a new root within it to show that NGINX will search your previously defined root path to append the requested URI to before moving on to examples that redefine the root.

Thanks again for sharing.
