Subject Re: [users@httpd] Permissions dilemma in the /var/log/httpd directory
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2007 17:02:18 GMT
I think that worked!
Just by adding umask 022 in apachectl startup script and restarting apache.

Subject:        [users@httpd] Permissions dilemma in the /var/log/httpd 
LSN: Not Relevant
User Filed as: Not a Record

Here is my dilemma and I'd appreciate some help.
Apache has been configured and is running fine.  But other users need read 
permissions to the /var/log/httpd directory.
Before I implemented cronolog (, I forced a permissions 
change to 755 in the startup script for the /var/log/httpd directory. 
After I implemented  cronolog this does not work, since cronolog 
automatically changes permissions to 400.
Is there a way to force permissions to 644 at least in the httpd.conf file 
and keep it that way even after cronolog rotates logs.
I could implement chmod -R 755 /var/log/httpd via cron at midnight, but 
this is a crude way of doing thing.  I hope there is a better, elegant 
way, via Apache.

I again appreciate any inputs to this.
