You should verify that /run/nginx.pid actually exists and contains the PID
of the master nginx process on your Rocky Linux system.

I think that adding the "create 0640 nginx root" line to the logrotate
config file would not help. You can issue the "kill -USR1 <PID>" where you
replace "<PID>" with the PID of the running nginx process and it SHOULD
create a new log file.
