Wonderful one-liners in configuration

I prefer to not use one-liner in blocks as above since it does not allow to
comment out some servers.

Yes... in this case I'll never be commenting out just one that I can think of, because it's a cluster started by cap.

location / {
try_files $uri $uri/index.html $uri.html @mongrel;

Nice! I've installed nginx from source and switched to this. Here's my config now (for my redmine instalation)

upstream mongrel-redmine { server; server; server; }
server {
  listen 443;
  server_name example.com;
  ssl on;
  ssl_certificate /etc/nginx/certs/myssl.crt; ssl_certificate_key /etc/nginx/certs/myssl.key;
  root /var/www/deployed-redmine/current/public;
  error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html; location = /50x.html { root /var/www/nginx-default; }
  if (-f $document_root/system/maintenance.html) { rewrite  ^(.*)$  /system/maintenance.html last; break; }
  location / {
    try_files $uri $uri/index.html $uri.html @mongrel;
  location @mongrel {
    proxy_pass http://mongrel-redmine;
    proxy_set_header X-FORWARDED_PROTO https;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
    proxy_redirect off;
