Re: Empty error and access log

Hello All,

Thanks for the updates.

Figured out that, nginx.pid file doesn't have the correct PID value(it contains 1) - which could be valid since nginx is running inside docker container and we are setting up the log rotation from the host machine where the log files getting rotated but new files not getting logged further by nginx worker process.

As per the comments tried to edit the nginx.pid file(with Nginx host PID),
then issued command "kill -USR1 `cat /var/run/nginx.pid`" which works fine and new log files getting created and logged with data.

Had came across the blogs, they suggested to use nginx reload during post rotation as below with the logrotate,
postrotate
docker exec nginx bash -c "nginx -s reload 2>/dev/null"
endscript

Kindly let me know, if above is a valid approach can be followed (or) to get the actual Nginx PID at host level & initiate kill command with USR1.

Thanks in advance.
Regards,
Krishna
