Let's say I have a directory named conf in the root of my website I want
to hide. From what I understood, if I have
  location /conf { 
    deny all;
It will not allow anybody to see what is inside /conf. But, what if I do
not want people even to know that /conf is there to begin with, while
other files and directories are visible?
