How to setup nginx to accept PUT request ?

When I try to issue a PUT request on my LEMP server I get error message 405 Not Allowed. From what I’ve searched on the net this means PUT request is not enabled in nginx config by default. I would like to know how to setup my LEMP server to accept PUT request.

Make sure nginx is compiled with the HttpDavModule (check with nginx -V), then add: dav_methods PUT; to the location in your server block.
