NGINX's main configuration file is nginx.conf. This video gives an overview of nginx.conf and explains the different types of directives NGINX uses to configure settings.
- [Instructor] Let's take a closer look…at NGINX's main configuration file, etc/nginx/nginx.conf.…I should also add that the need…to edit nginx.conf is very rare,…so as I open the file, I'll even use the view command…to make sure I don't make any unwanted changes.…In this file, we'll find the settings for NGINX…listed as simple directives on one line,…or in blocks on multiple lines.…
These blocks start with a directive,…and are followed by an open bracket,…more directives, and then a closing bracket.…One example of a simple directive…is the user setting on the very first line.…This defines the user that the NGINX process will use…after it gets started by the root user.…An example of a block directive is the http block.…This is a directive that contains other directives.…For example, several lines down,…we find the logging settings for the access and error logs,…and a few lines beneath that,…we find two include statements,…include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf,…and include /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/*.…
