by default does nginx just use a single log file?

m irya,

Thanks.  I'm planning to run 12.04 ubuntu.

What exactly does 're-opening' of a log file mean?  Isn't it already open,
meaning nginx has it open and is appending to it?

So step by step, what is to be done?

1. kill -USR1
2. rename file?
3. kill -USR1 'cat /var/run/'
4. profit
