Subject [users@httpd] rotatelogs creates logs as root
Date Tue, 27 Nov 2012 15:05:41 GMT

I've encountered a system which is configured to use the rotatelogs
application to rotate logs. For some reason, it creates subsequent log
files with root owner, while the log files should be owned by the Apache
user account.

Why is it, and what can I do to solve this problem?

Apache runs under a separate user account, only one instance is running as
root to be able to bind to port 80. I don't think rotatelogs should be
called as root, or if so, rotatelogs should chown the files to the Apache
user ID.
