Subject [users@httpd] Rotate access.log daily
Date Mon, 09 Oct 2006 05:12:53 GMT


I'm using Apache2 in front of two Tomcat servers. All my users go trough
Apache to reach the web application deployed on both Tomcat servers.

Now I have the problem that Apache's access.log grows very big in very short
time, I have about 17 MB in two days. I've configured log rotation to rotate
logs once per month but that will lead me into troubles with Apache's
access.log growing so fast.

Both Tomcat servers also have access.log files but every single day Tomcat
writes into a new filed named with the actual date, access.2006-10-09.log
for example.

Is this also possible with Apache2?
