When running php-fpm with --nodaemonize, error_log is not respected. Instead, messages appear on the console (assuming STDOUT).

This is an issue since distro started to use upstartd and launch php-fpm this way:

exec /usr/sbin/php5-fpm --nodaemonize --fpm-config /etc/php5/fpm/php-fpm.conf 

which means the output doesn't get written into what is defined in the configuration. Instead it ends up being caught by upstartd and dumped into something like:


Test script:
$ /usr/sbin/php5-fpm --daemonize

... error_log directive is respected, all error / warning / notice / debug go into log file.

$ /usr/sbin/php5-fpm --nodaemonize

... error_log is not respected. Debug and notice get out on STDOUT / STDERR.

Expected result:
It would be better if the error_log directive was always respected or if there was a command line option to use to force logging to file instead of STDOUT when the --nodaemonize option is used.

$ /usr/sbin/php5-fpm --nodaemonize --force-log

or something the like, or simply duplicate to error_log and STDOUT.

Sorry for very late replay but this looks like a distro issue to me as it might have overwrite the config maybe. If you still think it's FPM issue and you can see it for the latest version (preferably with supported init system), please post here your config and a bit more info about your setup.
