So your fastcgi server is expected to be at /var/run/php5-fpm.sock.

  ls -l /var/run/php5-fpm.sock

should show you that it really is there.

This looks like it *used to* try to access, but now it
accesses the expected socket.

This says it *actually* tried to access, and failed.

The nginx config you showed is not the one that the running nginx is
using when it created this log file.

Does the appropriate "nginx -t" show any problems? Does "nginx -s reload"
give any indication that it did not reload correctly?
