nginx.org docs search

Bernard Rosset
Hello,

First of all, since it is that time of the year, I hope you had a merry
Christmas, and I wish you all the best for the new year to come!

I am a regular user of the https://nginx.org/r/ prefix to search
documentation.

I might have asked that in the past, and/or someone else might have too,
but I can put my hands on such an answer:
How does one search a specific directive when multiple one share the
same name, inter-modules?
Example case: How to search for
https://nginx.org/en/docs/stream/ngx_stream_upstream_module.html#server,
and not https://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_core_module.html#server ?

Have a nice evening,
Bernard Rosset

There is no way to reference a particular directive among multiple
ones with the same name by using the nginx.org/r/ redirector.  
Mostly because additional module name would make the link
almost as long as the full one, and this hardly makes sense.

If you want to send a link, consider using a full link instead.  
If you are looking for a list of directives (or variables) with a
particular name, consider using the index pages:

http://nginx.org/en/docs/dirindex.html
http://nginx.org/en/docs/varindex.html
