    It's very accurate and works as it should.

    Another? It looks like the exact same text to me and they both carry copyright notices. Who was the original author?

    The webhostgear version adds some syntax highlighting which is nice :) , but surrounds the text by blinking ads which is not so nice :(

    Webhostgear has the original tutorials.

    Hmm, it would appear that ev1servers forums has the original, posted and adapted by aussie. ;)

    Perhaps, but not long ago Webhostgear (don't recall his user ID) had complained on this forum that multiple tutorials had been lifted from his site. And the truth is .........

    Not that it really matters, I was just curious to know if it was originally gothosting's tutorial (which IMO would justify him directing people to his site for the EXACT SAME TEXT) or if the post was merely to drive traffic to his site.

    For what it is worth, there is a discussion on these forums (http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=722) that predates the aussie thread. That makes sense because logrotate predates aussies thread and there are only so many ways to address the problem :D

    Aussie's thread on ev1 seems (based upon language) to be the basis of what was posted gvh.

    Not to say that this is the case, but for somethings tutorials are going to be pretty much the same as certain things can only be done one way.

    Also, unfortunatly putting the words copyrighted does not mean much unless you have truely gone to the government and made it of public record, AND/OR one has tangle proof of creatorship (sic).

    Here is a good read on dealing with copyrights -> http://www.whatiscopyright.org/

    I looked at a couple of other tutorials from the crucialparadigm site and they do in fact credit webhostgear at the bottom of some of the tutorials. Maybe they simply forgot to do so on the logrotate one.

    As a side note (and this deserves its own thread IMO), gothosting why do I not remember seeing you post here about this program ? To me a new (OK new to me :P ) security tool is news, and the first I heard of it was from browsing the crucial site (a tutorial credited to webhostgear which is why I posted the link to your site ;) ).

    Here is the sourceforge page for the rootcheck project.
