I use this config in my nginx.conf:

log_format main '$host $remote_addr $http_x_forwarded_for - $remote_user
[$time_local] $request_time ' '"$request" $status $bytes_sent ';

If you anymore questions perhaps it's best to ask them outside this list
without bothering other people, I'll be glad to help you.
