Config file order

I know the server order in the config file makes a difference. Does the
order of the statements inside the location tags make a difference?

Do I need to set the headers before doing a proxy_pass or does it
matter?

Thanks.

In most cases order doesn’t matter. There are some special cases
though, most notably regexp locations and rewrite module
directives, where order matters. In such special cases order of
processing is usually explicitly documented.

As for proxy_pass and proxy_set_header - order doesn’t matter.

That’s what I thought, but I wasn’t sure. I’m trying to get the remote
IP
to show up in my web server logs and wanted to make sure nginx was
sending
it.
