You can repeat acces_log in every location. If nginx complains -
you did something wrong (tried to repeat log_format?).

Thanks Maxim, that’s exactly what I did do, as my follow-up post
mentioned. All sorted now and working wonderfully. There is one other
thing, though…At the moment, I have two location blocks with identical
content, in order to match two different patterns. One matches all URLs
starting with certain strings, e.g.

location ~ ^/(abc|def){

The other is an exact match for the top level page:

location = /{

Ideally I would like to use a single pattern which combined both. I
thought to use regex end markers instead of the exact match, but I’m not
sure if it’s syntactically correct (and this is a very busy server i
don’t want to mess about with too much experimenting). So would
something like this work?

location ~ (^/abc|^/def/|^/$)

This looks like valid regular expression (try pcretest if unsure),
but from maintainability point of view I would recommend to use
multiple normal prefix or exact match locations instead of trying to
combine them into a single regexp.
