The relevant idea, if you didn't get it, is a follows:

Instead of trying to "convert" something from Apache to nginx, 
understand what the Apache configuration does, and then write an 
nginx configuration to do this.

In many cases, it might also be a good idea to don't "convert" at 
all, but rather use both Apache and nginx.  By using nginx as a 
proxy (accelerator, cache, load balancer, to server static files 
on some domains/locations) get most of the performance benefits, 
while preserving Apache as a well known application server (as 
well as preserving some Apache-only things like mod_svn).
