Web app servers are generally connection oriented and HTTP/1.1 provides far better connection support. When a new connection is made the app server has session setup as well as connection setup on a per connection basis, so constraint to HTTP/1.0 is very restricting. Beyond that there are many other parts of HTTP/1.1 that enrich the protocol. Olivier mentioned just one with chunked encoding, but consider other types of transfer such as ranged requests, Further reasons include but are not limited to: Extensibility Caching Bandwidth optimization Network connection management Message transmission Internet address conservation Error notification Security, integrity, and authentication and Content negotiation

The 1.0 constraint is pretty dire for me. Do I have alternatives to proxy-pass/upstream that would allow me to use Nginx or should I be looking at another HTTP server?

Thanks
