As previously suggested, you should check all logging settings in 
nginx configuration, as logging can be disabled on a per-location 
basis.  Try "nginx -T | grep access_log".

Also, it might be a good idea to make sure that requests you are 
looking for are actually handled by the nginx server you are 
looking at.  In particular, using tcpdump on the server to check 
that requests are actually coming might be a good idea.
