Proxy_bind doesn't work outside location

Hi

I don’t know if this is appropriate place or not but there is a bug with
proxy_bind, the directive has to be inside a location to work. I’m sure
this wasn’t true for early versions.
so this won’t work:
proxy_bind 1.7.2.109;
location /test {
.
.
.
proxy_pass …;
}

while this does

    location /test {
    .
    .
    .
    proxy_bind 1.7.2.109;
    proxy_pass ...;
   }

nginx version: nginx/1.1.8

Yes, it’s the bug. Thank you for report.

The bug was always here, since appearence of the proxy_bind
directive. Here is the trac ticket for it:

Maxim,

Is it possible to also merge the patch that proxy_bind support
variables when you fix this issue?
Thanks in advance.

Yes. I would like to rewrite the patch though, so it may take
some time.
