Subject [users@httpd] Apache 2.2.4 couldn't start rotatelogs.exe
Date Tue, 12 Jun 2007 10:44:21 GMT
Hi all,


I'm seeing a problem when using rotatelogs with Apache 2.2.4 on Windows
Server 2000 SP4. 


I'm using below syntax for ErrorLog in httpd.conf:


ErrorLog "|C:/PROGRA~1/apache/bin/rotatelogs.exe
C:/PROGRA~1/apache/logs/error.%Y%m%d 86400"


After installing, I couldn't start apache 2.2.4 in my server, it reports
errors in Event Logs: 


 "The Apache service named reported the following error: >>> Unable to open


 "The Apache service named reported the following error: >>> (22)Invalid
argument: Couldn't start ErrorLog process     ."
Apache started properly when I leave ErrorLog as below: 
ErrorLog C:/PROGRA~1/Apache/logs/error.log 

I've searched the Apache 2.2.4 bugs database and I saw this problem
described clearly in this bug :


But it is still marked as "NEW", so I wonder if anybody here know anything
about this or have any solution or workaround to get rotatelogs working with
apache 2.2.4?


Any of your response is highly appreciated!


Thanks much for your time!

Best regards,
