Xibo on Nginx - rewrite rules with SSL and Let's Encrypt (FYI)

Not sure whether these can be taken into some sort of manual or guide for people. As you may know, nginx does not support .htaccess rules. I’ll be refining some of these in the future:

server {
listen ssl;
server_name xibo.example.com www.xibo.example.com;

ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
ssl_ciphers ECDH+AESGCM:ECDH+AES256:!aNULL:!MD5:!DSS:!DH:!AES128;
ssl_ecdh_curve secp384r1;
ssl_prefer_server_ciphers on;
ssl_certificate /etc/ssl/your_domain.crt;
ssl_certificate_key /etc/ssl/your_domain.key;
ssl_client_certificate /etc/ssl/your_CA.pem;

    # Let's Encrypt

include /etc/nginx/acme.conf;
access_log /var/log/xibo-access.log combined;
error_log /var/log/xibo-error.log error;
root /var/www/xibo/web; # This is the subdirectory web in the main Xibo directory
index index.php index.html index.htm;

location / {
try_files $uri $uri/ @rewrites;

location @rewrites {
rewrite ^ /index.php last;
rewrite ^./authorize/.$ /api/authorize/index.php break;
rewrite ^./api/.$ /api/index.php break;
rewrite ^./install/.$ /install/index.php break;
rewrite ^./maint/.$ /maint/index.php break;

  	add_header 'Content-Type' 'text/plain charset=UTF-8';
  	add_header 'Content-Length' 0;
  	return 204;
  if ($request_method = 'POST') {
  	add_header 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' '*';
  	add_header 'Access-Control-Allow-Methods' 'GET, POST, OPTIONS';
