It looks like when testing a specific configuration file using -t -c /path/to/test/nginx.conf the test doesn't go over the includes in that configuration file.

Attached are the config files used to test. The test should fail as both server.example and shouldfail.example have a duplicate default server for

When saving the files directly in /etc/nginx and running nginx -t the test does indeed fail.

When saving the config files in a different folder (say ~/testconfig) and running as nginx -t -c ~/testconfig/nginx.conf it doesn't fail, as the includes from the config file aren't tested.

Reproducibility steps:

  1. extract the
  2. test contents using nginx -t -c /path/to/repro/nginx.conf
  3. test passes despite the fact that it should fail
  4. move conf files to nginx install (for example /etc/nginx)
  5. test using nginx -t
  6. test fails

The test should fail in both cases: when using the -c flag as well as normally without it.

Resolution: invalid
Status: newclosed

The nginx.conf configuration file uses:

    include ./sites-enabled/*;

and there is no sites-enabled directory in the archive, so no files are included.

Changing sites-enabled to sites-available results in expected test failure:

$ nginx -t -c /path/to/repro/nginx.conf
nginx: [emerg] a duplicate default server for in /path/to/repro/./sites-available/shouldfail.example:2
nginx: configuration file /path/to/repro/nginx.conf test failed

Replying to mdounin:

You're right, I completely missed that I'm including sites-enabled but that isn't available during the test phase in my workflow.
