According to docs ignore_invalid_headers may be set in http and server contexts. However ignore_invalid_headers=off doesn't have effect when specified in server context, while setting it at http works as expected.

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

The "ignore_invalid_headers" directive only make sense in default server for a given listen socket, but not in pure virtual servers. This is because parsing of request headers happens before nginx is able to select a virtual server based on a Host header.

Hmm.. IMHO, documentation should make that clear for a n00b like me :)

Sure, we'll update docs to make this clear (like it's already done for the merge_slashes directive).

The docs have just been updated.
