errorlog, slowlog and accesslog are created with permissions set to 0600 by 
default on PHP 5.3 and 5.4. 

Those files are often owned by root (at least in our setup but probably in a lot 
of setups), which makes it not convenient for developers to read them. They may 
contain useful information, such as PHP crashes.

Failing to fix it with umask in php-fpm init script (not mentioning the fact 
that it would affect php scripts too), I wrote a simple patch against PHP-5.3.10 
to modify open() calls with 0644 perms.

Note that Apache uses 0644 by default for its logs.

I have attached a new patch (the old one was incompatible with 5.3). I have also changed "a+" to "a" as fpm_php_trace_dump is only writing to the file, not reading. According to the manpage, fdopen must have a mode that is compatible with the fd. In the old patch, there was a mismatch between a+ and O_WRONLY.

Patch refreshed for context in PHP 5.5.3 (no other changes). Could you please consider fixing this bug that has been present for over a year? A patch is available.

Sorry, I fixed my patch on our systems but didn't take time to upload it here as 
nobody seemed to care. Thank you.

No need to apologize, I do care but apparently it is not very high on the to-do list of PHP devs (if there are any).

In January of this year, I reported an open_basedir-related security bug on this website, to which I still haven't got any reply yet. I wonder if somebody is actually using bug tracker besides users.

I would also like the possibility of settings the ownership of the error_log. Say, for example, I want it's user to be "root" and it's group to be "adm" (on Debian-based Linux distributions), so that users in "adm" can read it.
