Nginx has no feature like .htaccess for users to set directives themself as the nginx developers found it too slow to search for .htaccess like files in the filesystem for every request. Nginx is a fast but special apache replacements for high speed websites, like with most software, speed improvements go hand in hand with reducing functions. Nginx is not a replacement for apache in enuser scenarios for most internet service providers as it requires more knowledge and the .htaccess filedelivered with most cms systems can not be used,so the system administrator has to do these changes for its clients.
