Can you give a link to that documentation; and maybe to the content of
the config files?

My guess is that one part of a config file does "include
/etc/lemonldap-ng/nginx-lmlog.conf"; and another part does "include

With the symlink in place, the same contents are included twice; and
they have a piece that must only exist once.

If that is the case, then omitting the symlink should work -- the explicit
"include /etc/lemonldap-ng/nginx-lmlog.conf" should get the content in
the right place once.

With a working config file, "nginx -T" can help -- perhaps with "|
grep include" or "| grep '^# con'" -- to see what file are read.

Without a working config file, something like "grep include nginx.conf"
can show the first set of extra files that will be read. Duplicates
there are probably bad.

Good luck with it,
