On my Rocky Linux 9, I have found this file /etc/logrotate.d/nginx
/var/log/nginx/*log {
    daily
    rotate 10
    missingok
    notifempty
    compress
    delaycompress
    sharedscripts
    postrotate
        /bin/kill -USR1 `cat /run/nginx.pid 2>/dev/null` 2>/dev/null ||
true
    endscript
}

Whereas I have on my Fedora 36 (with a working fine log rotation process):
/var/log/nginx/*.log {
    create 0640 nginx root
    daily
    rotate 10
    missingok
    notifempty
    compress
    delaycompress
    sharedscripts
    postrotate
        /bin/kill -USR1 `cat /run/nginx.pid 2>/dev/null` 2>/dev/null ||
true
    endscript
}

Can I had on (create 0640 nginx root) on the server whitout risking to
break everything on next logs rotates?

Thank you,
Vincent.
