Not sure if there is a better list to ask this, so here goes.
I use logrotate to rotate the apache log files within each domains log
directory. They are in the home directory as such:
In the home directory, I also have symlinks that point to specific domain
domain1.ca -> domain1.com
domain1.net -> domain1.com
domain1.org -> domain1.com
someothername.com -> domain1.com
All this have beein said, when I use logrotate, it rotates the logs within
the directories that have sym links pointing to them over and over again. In
the case of domain1.com, the log would be rotated 5 times.
I am using a logrotate.conf container that looks like so:
# more logrotate.conf
create 644 root
So, obviously because I am using a wildcard within the container logrotate
is going through the symlinks and rotating the logs over and over.
Is there a way or method to ignore the symlinks (or a workaround) that
anyone knows of, other than making a logrotate.conf container for each
