Looks like php7-fpm worker always output uncaught exception to stderr, event catch_workers_output = yes.

so my nginx error log always has php exception logs.

Test script:
listen =
listen.backlog = 128

listen.owner = www-data = www-data
listen.mode = 0660
listen.allowed_clients =

user = www-data
group = www-data

pm = dynamic
pm.max_children = 5
pm.start_servers = 3
pm.min_spare_servers = 2
pm.max_spare_servers = 5
pm.max_requests = 100

pm.status_path = /status
ping.path = /ping

request_terminate_timeout = 40s
catch_workers_output = yes

chdir = /

env[TMP] = /tmp
env[TMPDIR] = /tmp
env[TEMP] = /tmp

Expected result:
when catch_workers_output = yes, it should only log error with the php-fpm error log file, and stderr should be empty.

Actual result:
php7-fpm worker always output uncaught exception to stderr, event catch_workers_output = yes.

I finally got time to look into this one - sorry for the late replay.

This is actually not a bug as it's an intended behaviour. The catch_workers_output is meant to pipe the output of the worker (child process) to the master process and the master process will output it to either stderr (if running if foreground) or to error log file (if demonized).

The fact that the error can be also seen in nginx error log is because error is also send to FCGI_STDERR. To disable it, fastcgi.logging can be set to off in php.ini.
