Description

[emerg] 2716#4564: unknown directive "disable_symlinks"

I tried using it in all contexts: http, server, location.

Same problem reported on MacOS - http://serverfault.com/questions/559490/nginx-symlinks-permission-denied-403-forbidden-on-mac-osx

Nginx 1.7.6 on Windows 7 64-bit, NTFS file system if that matters.
