Does nginx support OPTIONS request method?

Hi guys,
I am trying to make a cross-domain ajax request. The problem comes when
i try to POST .
Then Firefox makes “preflighted” request to see if it is OK to go
ahead.
Here is the request :

OPTIONS /publish/?id=123 HTTP/1.1
Host: 10.1.2.50:8002
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.2.8)
Gecko/20100723 Ubuntu/10.04 (lucid) Firefox/3.6.8
Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,/;q=0.8
Accept-Language: en-us,en;q=0.5
Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate
Accept-Charset: ISO-8859-1,utf-8;q=0.7,*;q=0.7
Keep-Alive: 115
Connection: keep-alive
Origin: http://10.1.2.50
Access-Control-Request-Method: POST

and response :

This response didn’t come from nginx, but from your backend.

I don’t think i understand what you say…
I don’t have any backend. This is clean nginx install( no fast-cgi or
what so ever) with http_push module.
Actually i am able to get the messages , but not post one.

All this works if i don’t use cross-domain requests (but then no OPTIONS
request is made).

Hi,

I don’t think i understand what you say…

I’m saying that response you presented wasn’t send by nginx (core)
itself.

I don’t have any backend. This is clean nginx install( no fast-cgi or
what so ever) with http_push module.

This is very important information, that you didn’t bother to mention
earlier… And as it turns out, that response was produced by
nginx_http_push_module, so you should probably contact its author and
ask
him if your particular use case is supported (because it seems that this
module supports at least some OPTIONS requests).
