Errors were showing up in the nginx logs, like this:

2009/02/01 09:49:22 [error] 22004#0: *466 FastCGI sent in stderr: "PHP 
Notice:  Undefined variable: template in 
/srv/www/nginx/ on line 45

Also, general http errors are not being written either. Before, if I 
tried to access a directory that did not exist, it would show in the 
error log. But it no long does this.

2009/02/01 11:13:35 [error] 22004#0: *13333 open() 
"/srv/www/nginx/" failed (2: No such file or 
directory), client:, server:, request: 
"GET /test HTTP/1.1", host: ""

I'm having a hard time figuring out why it stopped as I haven't changed 
the config since then, aside from adding a couple more vhosts.
