    If I wanted to do things manually, is it as simple as creating a file with the user/pass details and just editing my vhost config file to use that path and restarting nginx?

    I read it all but I was still confused because there was a line for a script to run. I prefer to do things manually first so I know what the script does automatically (want to only use scripts to save time). Thanks!
