Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache mod-jk log rotate issue
Date Mon, 13 Sep 2010 12:28:22 GMT
Thanks Jeff for your reply. 
Is apache expected to not create new mod-jk log right on restart? Shouldn't it create file
with 0 bytes on restart even if there is nothing to write at restart?
Regarding request being used to update mod jk with error, I had tried with loglevel set to
INFO, I could see an entry for that same request as ERROR so I think request should be good.

	Hi All,

	When log level was set to "error", it waits for error to happen and

	Could somebody please help?

rotatelogs doesn't create the file until it has something to write.

Perhaps your attempt to cause mod_jk to write an error message was unsuccessful, such that
rotatelogs had nothing to write.
