log/list IP Address accessing folder
September 28, 2019 11:57AM
Hello, I am using nginx for Windows and is there a log on what IP Address accessed the webserver folder? if not, is there a program that I can use to monitor a folder and tell me the IP Addresses of the computers that accessed the folder?
Thanks

Look in the /log folder.

There is a /logs folder which only has the files error.log and nginx.pid in it

Got it working. Had to define access_log;

access_log /logs/access.log

How do I correctly set buffer size and file size for the access log in windows?

If you are referring to ' open_log_file_cache',

open_log_file_cache max=1000 inactive=20s valid=1m min_uses=2;

Others,

open_file_cache max=1000 inactive=20s;
open_file_cache_errors on;
open_file_cache_min_uses 3;
open_file_cache_valid 20s;

Hi , no, I was referring to the windows nginx.conf setting;

log_format compression '$remote_addr - $remote_user [$time_local] '
'"$request" $status $bytes_sent '
'"$http_referer" "$http_user_agent" "$gzip_ratio"';

access_log logs/access.log compression buffer=16k flush=2m;


but I'm not sure if that is correct for what I want. I want to create the access log file which works but after a day the file is 1GB, I just want it to only store the last 5 minutes or so.

Its a flat file which gets appended, there is no size regulation.

Okay, is there something else I can do to about keeping the log file small?

Rename the logfile and signal nginx to reopen logs (nginx -s reopen) I think, check the options.

Okay, so what will this do for me? Do I have to run this every hour or something? Thanks

Try it and see, run it once a day and see how big/small the logs are.

It didn't seem to do anything with the access.log file :(
I can't rename it or delete it ahead of time before doing nginx -s reopen because I get access denied

I do it all the time, rename, reopen and move renamed files, works for all log files.
Look at access rights who does the rename.

You do it while nginx is running? if I stop the logging then I can delete it but while nginx in running, it has the file locked.

Yes while its running, locking has no bearing as a FD uses a link not a name while its open.

FOR %%G IN (*.log) DO ren "%%G" "%datename%_%%G"
nginx -s reopen
sleep 5
move /y %datename%_*.* data

Hello, this is the massage I get;

C:\nginx>nginxLogReopen.bat

Waiting for 0 seconds, press a key to continue ...
