Caddy Log time is not CentOS7 time,Time synchronization And read-only file system

1. Output of caddy version:

v2.6.2 h1:wKoFIxpmOJLGl3QXoo6PNbYvGW4xLEgo32GPBEjWL8o=

2. How I run Caddy:

systemctl start caddy

a. System environment:


b. Command:

systemctl  restart caddy

c. Service/unit/compose file:

# caddy.service
# For using Caddy with a config file.
# Make sure the ExecStart and ExecReload commands are correct
# for your installation.
# See for instructions.
# WARNING: This service does not use the --resume flag, so if you
# use the API to make changes, they will be overwritten by the
# Caddyfile next time the service is restarted. If you intend to
# use Caddy's API to configure it, add the --resume flag to the
# `caddy run` command or use the caddy-api.service file instead.


ExecStart=/usr/bin/caddy run --environ --config /etc/caddy/Caddyfile
ExecReload=/usr/bin/caddy reload --config /etc/caddy/Caddyfile --force


d. My complete Caddy config:

(handle_log) {
	log {
		output file /etc/caddy/logs/caddy2.log
		level INFO

(handle_errors) {
    handle_errors {
        respond "{http.error.status_code} {http.error.status_text}"
} {

	encode gzip

        import handle_errors

        import handle_log

	route /merchant/* {
		uri strip_prefix /merchant

		file_server {
			root /opt/twomicro_v2/web/merchant



	file_server * {
		root /var/www/html

        @nacos path /nacos /nacos*
        reverse_proxy @nacos {
            header_up Host {http.reverse_proxy.upstream.hostport}
            header_down Access-Control-Allow-Origin *
            header_down Access-Control-Allow-Methods GET,POST,OPTIONS
            header_down Access-Control-Allow-Headers *


3. The problem I’m having:

Caddy Log time is not CentOS7 time, time synchronization. Make caddy time consistent with OS time.

4. Error messages and/or full log output:

5. What I already tried:

i have aready assigned write permission to caddy2.log, but it was not work well.

6. Links to relevant resources:

fix log diretory , /var/log/caddy

	log {
		output file /var/log/caddy/info.log {
                    roll_size 30MiB

                    roll_keep_for 30d


		level INFO

then fix its permission

chown caddy:caddy /var/log/caddy

format log console

	log {
		output file /var/log/caddy/info.log {
			roll_size 100MiB

			roll_keep_for 30d


		format console {
			time_format wall


		level INFO

output logfile
