I want to upgrade nginx, and I want to use the same ./configure parameters I used the last time (--prefix=..., --conf=..., etc...). If I don't have access to the original installation directory, is there any way to query nginx or any config/cache file that I could use to obtain these parameters? (If not, is there any way to determine what these parameters were if I do have access to the original installation directory?)

Figures that I spend half an hour researching this, can't find anything, and post a question only to find the answer five minutes later staring at me in the docs: http://wiki.nginx.org/CommandLine

-V Print nginx version, compiler version and configure parameters.

So nginx -V did what I needed.
