I advocate the templating way.. but I hope it doesn't get into nginx
properly. Managing the generation of it's own configuration files is
generally a bad idea... then why not make coffee as well? ;)

This is very easy and very convenient if you have to generate lots of different configurations (say, for n virtual hosts, or n virtual hosts on n servers) but which all share a limited number of prototype configurations.

Does nginx have an api that i can use to edit information that is inside nginx.conf. This will help newbies add virtual host information and edit parameters via a UI.
