I think nginx -V should help.


nginx -h

nginx version: nginx/0.7.62
Usage: nginx [-?hvVt] [-s signal] [-c filename] [-p prefix] [-g directives]

  -?,-h         : this help
  -v            : show version and exit
  -V            : show version and configure options then exit
  -t            : test configuration and exit
  -s signal     : send signal to a master process: stop, quit, reopen, reload
  -p prefix     : set prefix path (default: /opt/nginx/)
  -c filename   : set configuration file (default: conf/nginx.conf)
  -g directives : set global directives out of configuration file
