That looks like an ad for a donation button; but it doesn't immediately
seem to say "here is how nginx is configured to access a remote web site

Or "here is how nginx is configured to be accessed as if it were a
proxy server".

(It does seem to indicate "this server acts as a reverse proxy
for some specific remote web sites"; but that's pretty much what does. No doubt there is extra cleverness
to handle the "I don't control the upstream server" issues that usually
arise; but it does not seem to be relevant to this thread. Am I missing
