Hi there,

	Well, our ISP uses a custom PERL rotate script which copies all log 
files to .old and then does an apachectl restart.  Sometimes it doesn't create
new log files, sometimes it does... when it's not creating new log files,
a new apachectl restart doesn't fix the problem.  My solution is to stop it,
check ps for all httpd process to die, then restart it... and the log files
get written.  Any idea?

Only use the apache distribution rotatelogs script?
