It seems that HTTP_AUTH_LDAP insists on logging notices and such to /var/log/nginx/error.log, even if the log settings in /usr/local/etc/nginx.conf state otherwise.
Nothing major, but may go unnoticed and create huge log build-ups, because newsyslog might only target the logs explicitly configured in /usr/log/etc/nginx.conf.
Thanks a lot!
is it still an issue? Or I can close the ticket.
No response from the originator.
