Subject Re: [users@httpd] Access and Error Logs Being Created Before Reaching Maximum Size or Time
Date Fri, 08 Mar 2013 19:40:35 GMT
This may be a dumb question but do you have logrotate running from cron?

If so, check your configuration and see if the log is being rotated by BOTH  
logrotate AND httpd.

John
