PHP fastcgi logging with woo-commerce / WordPress

We have a synchronisation script running with the REST API from WooCommerce. This script is running for years. But suddenly it received gateway errrors

In the /var/log/nginx/error.log, the following error messages appeared

2022/08/03 22:41:19 [error] 1233#33321: *323108 upstream sent too big header while reading response header from upstream, client:, server:, request: "POST /wp-json/wc/v3/products/1234/variations/batch HTTP/1.1", upstream: "fastcgi://unix:/tmp/", host: ""

It seems PHP is sending debug information over the FASTCGI headers.
This isn't desirable.

To fix it, disable it in php.ini. (it's on by default. WHY!?)

fastcgi.logging = 0

Btw. these errors/warnings are from low quality wordpress-plugins. (which cannot be replaced directly)
