comment Safe to remove unused, default nginx files (fastcgi, uwsgi, scgi)?
Deleting files you aren't using isn't going to do anything. Nginx doesn't have any inbuilt defaults of any relevance, perse, and isn't going to load files unless you tell it to. Alternatively just google the name of each file to determine their purpose.

Nginx won't start if there's a config problem. Why not move/delete them and find out?

Whether it's true or not: If your'e not happy look for another provider.

comment Nginx rate limit PHP files only
Or use a url pattern, if there is a pattern, which does permit nginx to "know" if the request is static or a dynamic request.

comment Convert .htaccess rule to the correct Nginx one
if (-e $request_filename){ online "convert apache to nginx" scripts are not worth using and best avoided. try_files is a better choice than that. Also rewrite ^/(.*) /$1 break; - that's a weird rule - you should probably delete that, it's not doing anything except preventing the next rewrite rule from being reachable.

comment nginx rewrite specific subdomain to nonssl
@r3wt because if there's only one ssl server block - it's the implicit default.

comment Is there any way to make Nginx use .htaccess files?
In your position I would 1) keep using apache 2) put nginx infront of it as a reverse proxy. In that way you have the option to leverage nginx for serving static files without needing to touch the "massive web app" that is effectively coupled to apache. You can also use varnish or any proxy instead of nginx.

comment nginx load balancer - how to preserve full original url in upstream?
The hardware load balancer can "do it all" -- terminate ssl, and send "pretend" requests back to the app (over port 80) - perhaps look at the actual request sent over the wire to determine how it's doing that. Either there's a header it's setting (such as ORIGINAL_URI) or it's doing something different than you think.

comment php open_basedir not working as expected on synology nas
My mistake, not that then. Probably a good idea to remove open base dir - if not permanently, to verify if it is the primary reason things don't work. IMO open base dir is unnecessary, it is a poor substitute for proper file permissions.

revised non-www or non-https forwarding Nginx and Magento backend
Don't link to domains you don't own. These should all refer to example.com, or the actual domain since that's probably necessary to answer the question.
