    I am receiving the same message from the server. Did any of you find a solution and why does it happen?

    Thanks

    I still receive this message and have not found out why it does it nor how to fix it. Please one of you CPanel gurus out there.....please help us newbies figure out what this is.

    Thank you.

    I'm still not sure but this exists:

    /etc/webalizer.conf.rpmorig

    Yeah, I was getting that, too, come to think about it. I immediately opened it up and deleted the line (in /etc/logrotate.conf) referring to httpd.rpmorig. It's going to ignore it anyway, so why have it? All is well now.

    I tried that, however there is no line regarding httpd.rpmorig.

    Sorry, I knew something was missing.
    /etc/logrotate.d
    There should be a file in there called httpd.rpmorig. Take off the .rpmorig ending. :)

    I could not as that would make two httpd files.

    I just moved it to another directory, and will see how that goes (as it was ignoring it anyway there should not be a problem).

    In my case, it was likely the old copy of httpd that was on my server before I updated to RH 9. During the update it was most likely renamed to httpd.rpmorig

    My quess would be thats its a backup of the original httpd file created when doing an upgrade.

    rpm (redhat package manager) orig (original file) ?

    Anyways, I just renamed mine to a file I know wouldn't get ignored so that i could leave it there incase I ever wanted it again...

    SSH in..

    cd /etc/logrotate.d

    rename httpd.rpmorig to something common, like httpd.rpmorig.log

    Now it will not longer ignore or send an error message and at the same time you still have the file (just rename it back) if you need it.

    I renamed it httpd.rpmorig.bak and got errors.

    /etc/cron.daily/logrotate:

    error: httpd.rpmorig.bak:1 duplicate log entry for /var/log/httpd/*log

    I will try to rename it httpd.rpmorig.log and see what happens tomorrow night. What if the file just gets the old rm command?
