Subject [users@httpd] rotatelog: text explanation
Date Fri, 10 Oct 2003 11:31:29 GMT

On the documentation page of rotatelogs, the following sentence:

«This creates the files /var/logs/logfile.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 rota- tion time (here after 24 hours) a new log 
is started.»

does not look really clear for me, especially the «so you can 
synchronize cron scripts with it».

So, can someone explain me what it the time at which the log normally 
starts? The start of Apache? For example, I'd like to make a rotation 
every 2 hours starting at 1:30 AM. How can I do that?
