I'm curious. Could you share your server block config?

As for the server name, I've thought about it in the past and
initially saw it as an issue. However, as an open source supporter and
user I can definitely understand the wishes of the nginx team and do
want to advertise for the project as well. On the practical side, IMO
I think there are more things you need to worry about than simply
hiding the name. If somebody can compromise your system based on
knowing that it's nginx, you either have a config issue, or they are
smart enough to detect nginx even without you advertising the name.
