Title: Large domlogs files
Post by: ring_c on February 02, 2019, 09:59:44 PM
In /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ I have very large log files. Is there a way to make them up to a specific size?

In file '/etc/logrotate.d/apache' change the line:
Code: [Select]
/usr/local/apache/logs/*_log {
(...)

to

Code: [Select]
/usr/local/apache/domlogs/*.log {
(...)
(Note the point in the name)

If you do not want to run out of the rotation of  '/usr/local/apache/logs/*_log' files, then instead of changing that file, add a file with that content changed (with any filename) in '/etc/logrotate.d/' directory.

Thanks for your reply but I have no such file under /etc/logrotate.d/...
Should I create one?

Wow...!!!
If you don't have logrotate installed, you will have disk space problems briefly!
Logs in the server consume too much disk space.

So, you must install logrotate as soon as possible.

Use:
Code: [Select]
# yum install logrotate

I do have the folder logrotate.d as you've mentioned, but not the specific file you've mentioned.
Doesn't that mean logrotate is installed already? Is there a way to make sure without trying to install it?

Hello,

If logrotate is not installed, the other option is to delete the logs manually at regular times
 cat /dev/null > /usr/local/apache/domlogs/<the log file>

logrotate is installed. I've checked, but I don't have the file apache under /etc/logrotate.d/
How can I create it?

Create it with the following content:

Code: [Select]
/usr/local/apache/domlogs/*.log {
    rotate 52
    weekly
    missingok
    notifempty
    sharedscripts
    delaycompress
    postrotate
/bin/kill -HUP `cat /usr/local/apache/logs/httpd.pid 2>/dev/null` 2> /dev/null || true
    endscript
}

Thanks, I've created the file.
