Slightly OT: Cron for Logrotate and Squid
Howdy list, Hey does anyone know what the best cron job is to call logrotate to run the squid logrotations? -Or the subscribe address for a squid or logrotate mailing list (can't seem to find anything other than the usual MARC archives). I have this in /etc/logrotate.conf # rotate log files daily, they get too big otherwise, another story. daily # keep 8 wee...

I understand it is that way for security reasons. The box in question is on a dedicated hosting site and that's...

Logrotate problems
Hi Y'all, We have nginx set up and we are having problems with logrotate. The permissions and users do not seem to be any different from other machines that are working ok however the /var/log/nginx does have a directory in there that we are using to collect some special log stuff. Could this subdirectory be interfering with the logrotate process? ta Andr...

date in logrotate
Quick logrotate question for the group. To comply with a PHB mandate, I need to keep our apache logs for a minimum of 2 years, and will be periodically required to hand over chunks of the logs from specific dates/times. While extending the timeframe of logrotate is easy, I've found that there's no eleg...

Dovecot stops logging of imap logins after logrotation
Hi list, on my Debian box there is a logrotation cron job that will gzip existing /var/log/mail.log file and create a new mail.log. It seems that after running logrotation dovecot stops logging successful POP or IMAP logins to /var/log/mail.log (nevertheless, it still works to login with POP or SMTP). This is bad because pop-before-smtp mechanisms also stop working.

What fires logrotate
I've been taking a look at how RedHat (and CentOS) handles logrotate. According to the man page, logrotate is supposed to be fired by cron. But when I look at root's crontab $ sudo crontab lu root no crontab for root What exactly fires logrotate (and other scheduled events like "logwatch", which ends up in root's inbox)? === Al

fail2ban logrotate failure
I got the fail2ban from epel. There were a number of issues relating to using a log file... logwatch was looking for both fail2ban and fail2ban.log logrotate file fail2ban added looked for fail2ban.log and then reset itself to syslog fail2ban itself went to syslog, over riding its fail2ban.log. took a while, but I use /var/log/fail2ban now, that finally worked through logrotates and logwatch. Problem with centos variant of fail2ban: log...

Logrotate problems
Actually, doing what logrotate suggests causes other problems. We don't have this problem on any other system so I am keen to understand the root of the issue rather than start messing around with the default permissions of the log directories. logrotate only matches /var/log/nginx/*log - /var/log...
