Manual Page: rotatelogs – Apache HTTP Server

NAME rotatelogs - rotate Apache logs without having to kill the server SYNOPSIS rotatelogs logfile rotationtime DESCRIPTION rotatelogs is a simple program for use in conjunction with Apache's piped logfile feature which can be used like this: TransferLog "|rotatelogs /path/to/logs/access_log 86400" This creates the files /path/to/logs/access_log.nnnn where nnnn is the system time at which the log nominally starts (this time will always be a multiple of the rotation time, so you can synchronize cron scripts with it). At the end of each rotation time (here after 24 hours) a new log is started. OPTIONS logfile The path plus basename of the logfile. The suffix .nnnn is automatically added. rotationtime The rotation time in seconds. SEE ALSO httpd(8)
