Hello,

Can we suppress errors of the form:

2013/11/19 10:14:58 [error] 21848#0: *49602
"/path/to/web/root/DATA/2013/320/index.php" is not found (2: No such
file or directory), client: ::ffff:xxx.xxx.154.69, server:
www.example.com, request: "GET /location/path/2013/320/ HTTP/1.1", host:
"www.example.com"

...when Autoindex is on? In these cases, we want clients to browse the
directory for data and there is simply no index page available.

Please advise.

Thanks,
Nick

Normal use of index files (as per the "index" directive, see
http://nginx.org/r/index) doesn't cause such error messages to
appear.  Instead, index module is silently skipped, and autoindex
starts working.

Most likely you are using some rewrite instead, or something like
this.

Thank you,

In the end, it seems someone was actually trying to enter a wrong URL.

Thanks for the clarifications and sorry for the noise...
