List of Nginx variables?

Does anyone know where I can find a list of the variables used in nginx?

I know the following are available:
$http_host
$uri

Are there any others?

The wiki (http://wiki.codemongers.com/) has most things documented,
but there isn’t a list of variables per se - just the variables listed
when you read about a specific feature.

Main ones are described here:
http://wiki.codemongers.com/NginxHttpCoreModule

You have also some more in the wiki depending on the modules.

I’ve found a list in http://wiki.codemongers.com/NginxHttpCoreModule,
but it doesn’t seem to be complete (no $http_host).

I think it would be useful if we had all the variables documented.

First of all, these are the variables, which represent the lines
of the title of the client request, for example, $http_user_agent,
$http_cookie and so forth.

[end quote]

All headers sent by client are available through $http_*
variables. Their existance isn’t guaranteed and their meaning
defined elsewhere (e.g. in relevant standards).

Some more notes on variables in general:

Any module can define its own variables, and so variables are
usually documented in context of module which provides them.

Ah, I see. Thanks for that. Maybe this should be stated in the wiki then?

This is what wiki basically states but in shorter form. :wink:

Feel free to change wording if you think current description isn’t
complete enough.

I’ll bear that in mind.

Thanks again.
