I’ve noticed that many people have asked me about how location blocks in Nginx work, mainly because the Nginx documentation isn’t as clear as it could be on this topic. So, I decided to create a comprehensive guide to help clarify the differences between various types of location blocks, explain when to use each type, and provide examples for a better understanding of their practical applications. This guide will be especially useful for those who are new to Nginx or want to improve their web server configuration skills.
