Clean nginx log

Hello,

I’m not sure, is it just right to truncate the nginx’s access log by:

echo -n > /path/to/log/access.log

Thanks.

nginx uses O_APPEND flag for access log, so this trick may work.
There is however, a more safer way:

rm access.log
kill -USR1 cat /path/to/nginx.pid

That’s right. Thanks Igor.
