Problem with error file

Hi all!

I have installed NGINX v1.8.0 with PHP v 5.2.6 in Windows 7 (64 bits).

In the root directory of nginx (c:\nginx), a file called “error” is
generated. The size of this file grows too, causing the hard drive runs
out
of free space.

Attachment my config file of nginx (nginx.conf).

Regards,

Ricardo

It would be more helpful to see whats in this error logfile.
Don’t attach files here, use pastebin or the sorts.

Are you sure it’s called “error”? According to your
configuration, it should be called “off”:


error_log off;

Note that “off” isn’t a special value for the error_log directive.
To reduce logging of errors consider tuning the logging level
instead, see http://nginx.org/r/error_log.

Maxim,

I’m Sorry, I have made a mistake.

As you say, the line called: error_log is in “off” in config file.

The file that I have problems is called: off (without extensin) in
C:\nginx.

Its content is:

[error] 6072#0: *27 open() “/cygdrive/c/nginx/html/robots.txt” failed
(2: No
such file or directory), client: 10.0.0.1, server: localhost, request:
“GET
/robots.txt HTTP/1.1”, host: “10.0.0.50”

The same message is repeated constantly.

Regards,

Ricardo

The file that I have problems is called: off (without extensión) in
C:\nginx.

So no problem here, nginx works exactly as you’ve configured it,
writes errors to the file named “off”. If you want it to work
differently - configure it differently.

Maxim,

How should I set nginx to avoid writing in the “off” file?

Ricardo

Specify different filename using the “error_log” directive. See
details in the documentation here:

http://nginx.org/r/error_log

You can set error logging to a different level. See
http://nginx.org/en/docs/ngx_core_module.html#error_log.

Also, since it seems to be one file, you can use the “log_not_found”
directive. See
http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_core_module.html#log_not_found.

Something like:

 location = /robots.txt {
     log_not_found off;
     access_log off;
 }
