I found a simple way to trigger a message to the error log, so I
thought I’d share it in case someone also has use for this.
If the root of your site is /foo/mysite/ create an empty directory
there, e.g. /foo/mysite/xyzzy
Do *not* create any index file there, e.g. no index.html or index.php
Now you request that URL via any client of your choice, e.g. curl:
That request will trigger a message to the error log that looks like
2020/06/20 07:30:04 [error] 694#694: *835 directory index of
"/foo/mysite/xyzzy/" is forbidden, client: 172.16.3.248, server: ,
request: "GET / HTTP/1.0"
