Force Nginx to log error?

Mmmm... If you set it to debug you would probably get something to pop
up sooner rather than later....

My error log level is set to 'error' and I typically see some ocsp
cert timeouts and the occasional client exceeding my request (rate)
limit settings... Not a lot ends up in the nginx error log (at least
not at the level I use)...

Setting up rate limiting is just a few lines in the config, then you
can hit a page with curl or wget and force it to trigger which would
end up in the error log...

If you have something invalid in your config and do a restart, it will
also write that into the error log...
