Usage of nginxModules

I’m new to Nix and I took my quite some time to figure out how to use an Nginx module.

my suggestion is to add an example, like this:

  services.nginx = {
    enable = true;
    user = "root"; # to allow PAM authentication via /etc/shadow
    package = (pkgs.nginx.override { modules = [ pkgs.nginxModules.pam ]; });


in the nginx chapter of the documentation

Another great place for very specific documentation would be the wiki, namely Nginx - NixOS Wiki . Thanks for your efforts :+1:
