Subject Re: [users@httpd] question about roatelogs -n
Date Wed, 01 Apr 2015 00:47:31 GMT
Hi Jonny,

I'm not sure whther rotatelogs can do this. However, I usually use
logrotate http://linux.die.net/man/8/logrotate and it has the ability to do
this. Here's how it's setup for apache:

ubuntu@ip-172-31-11-241:~$ cat /etc/logrotate.d/apache2
/var/log/apache2/*.log {
weekly
missingok
rotate 52
compress
delaycompress
notifempty
create 640 root adm
sharedscripts
postrotate
/etc/init.d/apache2 reload > /dev/null
endscript
prerotate
if [ -d /etc/logrotate.d/httpd-prerotate ]; then \
run-parts /etc/logrotate.d/httpd-prerotate; \
fi; \
endscript
}

You can also see it's keeps access.log current and appends the number to
each new one. It also separately compresses the files after a time.

ubuntu@ip-172-31-11-241:~$ ls -l /var/log/apache2/
total 75788
-rw-r----- 1 root adm 6356 Mar 31 18:29 access.log
-rw-r----- 1 root adm 60851094 Mar 29 06:32 access.log.1
-rw-r----- 1 root adm 2013 Jan 4 06:51 access.log.10.gz
-rw-r----- 1 root adm 2442 Dec 28 06:29 access.log.11.gz

Hope that helps!

Kate
