It seems the access.log / php-fpm directive "guesses" the locale from the timezone set?

Systemtimezone is set to "Europe/Berlin" -> strftime %b -> "Mai"

tried setting the timezone to "Europe/London" -> strftime %b -> "Mail"

Would it be possible to set the locale for the access.log strftime parsing?

Okay, did some further testing.

So somewhere hidden there's a 

setlocale(LC_ALL, 'de_DE.ISO8859-1', 'de_DE.ISO8859-15E');

call. So the current scripts Locale seems to affect the log output (which should be mostly English in my opinion)

So it would be more a feature request having a custom locale for the fpm access.log strftime locale.

This is because fpm logs before rshutdown is called for some reason. We reset the locale in rshutdown and other sapis will log after shutdown.


It should be safe to change that order

I tested this fix in the master branch:

And it seems to be working fine. @fat, any reason to not log after request shutdown here?
