Description

Original config:
log_format combined_time '$remote_addr - $remote_user - $proxy_host $upstream_addr [$time_local] '

'"$request" $status $body_bytes_sent $request_time';

server {
...
access_log /var/log/nginx/$host.access.log combined_time;
...
}

Nginx does not creating new log files, and does not write logs access logs at all.

Changing to:
access_log /var/log/nginx/testing.access.log combined_time;

Log file successfully created.

Changing to:
set $site test1;
access_log /var/log/nginx/$site.access.log combined_time;

And again no files created and no access logs at all.

Make sure document root is set and exists. See http://nginx.org/en/docs/http/ngx_http_log_module.html#access_log for details.
