I have an Nginx server this is returning a 403 when a client uses the HTTP OPTIONS method. It sounds like Nginx does not support the OPTIONS method, but I couldn't find conclusive evidence of this on the Interwebs.

Right now Nginx is running on Centos5. Is it true that Nginx does not support this and is there a module that could be enabled for Nginx to support OPTIONS?

This is not supported in nginx. Your options are to write a module yourself, or wait for someone else to do it. There is a list of official modules and 3rd party modules available on their wiki.
