Problem with inheriting fastcgi params

I have my normal fastcgi params in my main nginx.conf file, under server {}


fastcgi_param QUERY_STRING $query_string;
fastcgi_param REQUEST_METHOD $request_method;
fastcgi_param CONTENT_TYPE $content_type;
fastcgi_param CONTENT_LENGTH $content_length;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name;
fastcgi_param SCRIPT_NAME $fastcgi_script_name;
fastcgi_param REQUEST_URI $request_uri;
fastcgi_param DOCUMENT_URI $document_uri;
fastcgi_param DOCUMENT_ROOT $document_root;
fastcgi_param SERVER_PROTOCOL $server_protocol;
fastcgi_param GATEWAY_INTERFACE CGI/1.1;
fastcgi_param SERVER_SOFTWARE nginx/$nginx_version;
fastcgi_param REMOTE_ADDR $remote_addr;
fastcgi_param REMOTE_PORT $remote_port;
fastcgi_param SERVER_ADDR $server_addr;
fastcgi_param SERVER_PORT $server_port;
fastcgi_param SERVER_NAME $http_host;
fastcgi_ignore_client_abort on;
fastcgi_buffers 32 8k;
fastcgi_index index.php;

The problem is, whenever I want to add a variable (maybe override too,
I forget) it seems to clear all the other ones out:

               location ~ \.php$ {
                        fastcgi_param HTTPS on;

Now, only fastcgi_param HTTPS is set. no more SCRIPT_FILENAME so it's broken.

I would assume it would be able to inherit everything globally and
only add to the fastcgi_params on demand.

This is using nginx 0.7.55 or thereabouts but it's been an issue I've
noticed in the past too.

Can nginx support this?
