just a quick question

in lighttpd i was able to pass the username and pass from the url to php

but nothing happens in nginx?

let me explain

lets say you have a URL like this

i expect my php backend to have user and pass entries in the $_SERVER
variable as happens with lighttpd

am i missing something with nginx? is it even possible?
