    Hey All

    Im really concerned with the logs that arnt setup to rotate by cpanel.
    I dont know if cpanel thinks they are irrelevent or if that just dont know about them.

    My main concerns are logs going over 2 gig mark (dom logs), but that is discusssed in another thread.

    What about the other apache logs, not in the domlogs folder ??
    also
    The logs in /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/logs ?

    Shall I just create my own rotate jobs for them and hope for the best ?
    Which processes neeed restarting once logs have been rotatte.. just syslogd ??

    Anyone know of any onther logs that should be setup to rotate, please add them here :)

    Thanks for the help.
    Andy

    Hey guys

    Anyone know if you cant symlink the domlogs directory to another partition ??

    I have done this and the logging works fine, but I have noticed that at the end of the month the domlogs are NOT rotating anymore. :(

    I have told cpanel to archive the log at the end of the month, which it does correctly, but it doesnt empty the domlog file !%!#!

    I check in Tweak settings and the option ot KEEP logs at the end of month is also off.

    Thnaks for the help.

    The best tutorial i found was on EV1 forums. Search for "Let talk about log rotation". It fixes everything to do with log rotation. :D
