I'm trying to get newsyslog to rotate my apache2 logs (this in 7.0 & 7.1 release).
I added this to the end of newsyslog.conf
/var/log/httpd-*.log 644 9 8 @T01 BG /var/run/httpd.pid 30
this is what is currently working for me in 6.0 & 6.1. Signal 30 is supposed to
be USR1 which is intended to cause a graceful restart.
However, I find that although I do get a rotated log file the new logs always
seem to be empty.
The logs seem to start growing only after I restart the apache server.
What am I doing wrong?
