#2429 new defect

Ship FHS compliant packages (/var/run > /run)

Reported by: istiak101@… Owned by:

Component: nginx-package Version: 1.22.x
Keywords: Cc:
uname -a:
nginx -V: 1.22.1


In 2015 Linux FHS was updated.

And recently systemd started complaining about this on newer distro releases like RHEL 9.X.

I inspected official stable and mainline RPM package and found that it still uses /var/run. It should switch to /run for Linux distro packages. This is not actually a nginx issue but rather packaging issue. So pardon me if I mislabeled any components.

Sorry I couldn't add many links TRAC detecting it as spam. Here is a Ubuntu reference.

So anything that ships with systemd should update. Other than that it's Linux FHS.

Just for the record, changing /var/run/ to /run/ in nginx configuration will break configuration reload (till nginx restart or upgrade) on systems using symlinks from /var/run/ to /run/ or vice versa, see ticket #796.
