We’ve updated the NGINX config reloader to not allow absolute includes.

Absolute includes worked against the NGINX config reloader. The purpose of the config reloader is to ensure that the live config is syntactically correct and working, having an outside dependency (include) that can change the running live config can cause NGINX to no longer come up.

Specifically the following includes are no longer allowed:

include /absolute/path/to/file
include relative/../../path_with_two_dots

Please use relative includes instead:

include staging.access
include app/staging.http
