Good stuff -- it sounds like you have a thing that works well enough
for testing, at least :-)

I'm not certain it always applies, but in general for a "file" or "path"
directive that relates to the filesystem, if the value starts with a /
it is a full filesystem path, otherwise it is relative to the nginx
default directory; there are things like "try_files" which describe the
exception. For a url, it will usually be "full" (starts with /) unless
you know why it should not.

If there are specific places where the documentation is unclear, or was
unclear when you read it for the first time, then I suspect that people
will be happy to adjust things -- but it is hard for someone who already
knows what is intended, to know how some text will be read by someone
unfamiliar with it. So any feedback that leads to an improvement for
the next reader, will be good.

Thanks,
