I see in other mail that that has become fixed -- probably this location
was not being used for this request, owing to an earlier "location ~
php", or something else that was changed since it had been working before.

I actually meant literally "grep 'server\|location'", to show the
server{} blocks (and server_name directives) and the location directives
in your config, which might be enough to show which location{} is used
for one request.

But your nginx version is from before "-T" was added, so you would have
to look in the config file (and any include:d files) directly, and there
isn't a simple one-liner to do that.

And now that it works for you, it is not important any more :-)
