Subject: logrotate question
I am trying to use logrotate from ports and I am getting the
error. Can anyone offer any insight?
I started investigating logrotate but someone put me on to newsyslog
Newsyslog is part of the FreeBSD and amazing simple to setup:
1) vi /etc/newsyslog.conf
2) Add the following line:
/var/log/httpd/*.log www:www 644 60 * @T00 BJG
I would recommend reading man pages newsyslog newsyslog.conf for more
I use newsyslog for other log files, but when I decided I needed to
rotate apache logs, recently (see "rotatelogs rotates logs too
quickly" thread), I read the following in "Absolute FreeBSD, 2nd
"If you simply use newsyslog to rotate your [Apache] logs as you do
for other programs, Apache will corrupt its own logs. Apache supports
logging to programs, however. I recommend handling your logs via
rotatelogs(8), included with Apache."
It took me a whole day to switch over to rotatelogs and then
investigate some odd behavior, but its working great now.
