The example configuration in question is just an example, and it 
assumes scripts are in the /scripts folder.  In particular, it 
demostrates that php scripts can be stored in a folder distrinct 
from the document root.

For a typical configuration where php scripts are located under 
the document root there is a fastcgi.conf include file, which 
combines fastcgi_params and "fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME
