Subject Re: Logging Requirement in Tomcat 5.5.16
Date Wed, 21 Apr 2010 08:35:19 GMT
Oops, type too fast. I want catalina.out to be rotate daily but Tomcat give
me extra files (catalina.out.1.gz, catalina.out.2.gz...catalina.
out.30.gz). I don't want those extra files. Any chance to disable that?

The extra files are generated by Tomcat by default? I do not specify those
file rotation anywhere.
