I have been playing around with the  dockerfile and trying to find
a way to run run nginx as non-root with openshift/k8/docker.
I am currently getting the error:
nginx: [alert] could not open error log file: open()
"/var/log/nginx/error.log" failed (13: Permission denied)
2016/05/04 20:51:09 [warn] 1#1: the "user" directive makes sense only if
the master process runs with super-user privileges, ignored in
2016/05/04 20:51:09 [emerg] 1#1: open() "/etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf"
failed (13: Permission denied) in /etc/nginx/nginx.conf:33

I have alredy added to my Dockerfile:
Run ...
 && chmod 777 /etc/nginx/nginx.conf \
 && chmod 777 /var/run \
 && chmod 777 /etc/nginx/conf.d/default.conf

I also run bash on the container and was albe to "cat" the "default.conf"
and the "nginx.conf" files.

I am not sure if its the correct place to put this question, but I got here
(as you can notice, I have copied the beginning of the email from Scott´s
email. Hope you don´t mind!=o) )

Best regards,
