Subject [users@httpd] create errorlog folder
Date Mon, 27 Jul 2009 09:48:01 GMT

I'm sorry if this has been discussed before, but I've been looking 
through this list's archive and found nothing related to it.

anyway... the thing is that I'm running a web server, with multiple 
domains running on a virtual-host set up.

Each domain name has its own error_log file, through the ErrorLog 
directive in the individual conf file.

For some reason (I'm trying to find out), the path where the error_log 
file is kept gets deleted from time to time i some of the domains (each 
one has its own errorlog folder). After that, when i perform a 
configtest, apache doesn't complain, but when i run graceful, it stops 
working as to apache this is a major problem.

So... i just would like to know if i can do something to avoid this from 
happening... may be can i set up apache so that a message like "errorlog 
file does not exist" appears in the configtest and not only in the 
graceful itself? may be can i make apache create that folder if it 
doesn't exist? may be can i make apache ignore that problem and consider 
it like a warning and not error?

I know that apache is able to create a new error_log file if it doesn't 
find one and has the right privileges, but it fails to create the 
folder. I guess this is the normal and expected behaviour, i just need 
to know if i can make it behave as i need.

Thanks in advance.
