Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache 2.2, rotatelogs.exe, and Windows
Date Tue, 18 Sep 2007 17:39:53 GMT
So this leads me to ask again, what are all of you successful 2.2.4 admins using 
to rotate your logs?  If the piping mechanism is broken, at least in the Windows 
binary, then what other technique(s) are people using?  Task Scheduler with a 
batch or CMD file?

So far I've been manually rotating the logs, but I'd understandably like to 
automate it.
