Remote http{} block from nginx sample config

    Details

      Description

      The nginx.sample.conf currently shipped by phpBB includes the following:

      http {
          # Compression - requires gzip and gzip static modules.
          gzip on;
          gzip_static on;
          gzip_vary on;
          gzip_http_version 1.1;
          gzip_min_length 700;
       
          # Compression levels over 6 do not give an appreciable improvement
          # in compression ratio, but take more resources.
          gzip_comp_level 6;
       
          # IE 6 and lower do not support gzip with Vary correctly.
          gzip_disable "msie6";
          # Before nginx 0.7.63:
          #gzip_disable "MSIE [1-6]\.";
      

      and has the the following on top:

      # Global settings have been removed, copy them
      # from your system's nginx.conf.
      

      which is basically shows the issue where this request is originating from:

      The most common use case is to have such http{} blocks in the global nginx.conf and only include additional configurations (for e.g. different vhosts) from the nginx.conf with something like e.g.:

              include /etc/nginx/conf.d/*.conf;
              include /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/*;
      

      Based on the explanation above i would suggest to remove the surrounding http{} block in the nginx.sample.conf including the gzip stuff (which should be either in the nginx.conf or in a separate gzip.conf and included in the nginx.conf). Especially the gzip code is also something which is not directly related to phpBB.
