I followed a tutorial on configuring Nginx to prevent host header attacks on Meduim. I placed the statement in the /etc/nginx/nginx.conf within the http section under server however curl request is still returning data and not the expected curl: (92) HTTP/2 stream 1 was not closed cleanly: INTERNAL_ERROR (err 2).

Nginx is running on 1.16.1

Is there anything else I need to add to the conf file or elsewhere? Apologises this is all me learning the hard way!

Nevermind, figured it out after playing around with it and it seems work placed in the sites-enabled/mydomain file in the server section.
