Have anybody experience on remote access and error logging of Nginx? We have such setup for Apache, but would like to migrate to Nginx.

Yes you can have site specific access and error log in your project config or a global access and error log in your nginx.conf

With Apache we can define host messages coming to. Remotely. So local FS doesn't have any web server logs at all. According my search, I see I can setup remote logging with Nginx, but logging should come to local FS first which is we are trying to avoid. – Roman Newaza Feb 15 '12 at 16:48
