Subject [users@httpd] question about roatelogs -n
Date Sat, 28 Mar 2015 19:43:39 GMT

I've a question to the rotatelogs command.
I'm using following Apache Version:

Server version: Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu)
Server built:   Mar 10 2015 13:05:59

I'm using the rotatelogs command in my Vhost as follows:
"|/usr/bin/rotatelogs -p /opt/bin/apacheloguser -n 3 /path/to/logfile
10M" combined

according to the man page it works as expected,
when logfile size reaches 10MB it:
1. creates a new File: logfile.1 and starts logging to this file
--> when logfile.1 reaches 10MB:
creates a new file: logfile.2 and start logging to this file

I would like to know if it is possible to make this behaviour possible:

1. rename logfile.1 to logfile.2
2. rename logfile to logfile.1
3. create new file logfile and start logging to this file

Thanks in advance and
Kind regards
Jonny Rimkus
