Perhaps someone might be able to help.
The /var/log/httpd-access.log file is turned over at least
once a week on a VPS running 10.2-Stable.
/var/log/httpd-*.log 644 10 500 * GX
is the line I have in /etc/newsyslog.conf.
After the file is turned over no messages are saved from the apache24
daemon. There is just a line from newsyslog(8) with the date, hostname
process number and a message that the file was turned over.
After restarting httpd(8) all messages are logged again.
Other httpd-* log files are do not fill up as quickly, but are
probably affected as well. How can I keep getting logs from
the server without a service restart?
