syntax: proxy_method [method] 

default: None 

context: http, server, location 

Used to allow the proxying of additional HTTP methods. 

Note: at this time, Nginx only appears to allow a single instance of
this directive and it only accepts a single argument (method) so it's
not clear how useful this might be for proxying to things like


proxy_method PROPFIND;
