"why are you still using RHEL6?" --> It’s an client requirement to continue with RHEL

I don’t see such scenario you stated below for the rotation. Do we have any other configuration
files to update in RHEL 6 server to Apache log rotation?

Thanks & Regards

Subject: [EXT] Re: [users@httpd] Urgent: Apache log is not rotating after the upgrade

We have a similar setup and the log actually **does** rotate, but instead of archiving the
active log to the next numbered log and renumbering them down the line, it actually instead
moves the active log to the next archive number and moves the rest down the line.  So for
example, instead of today's log being http24_access_log, it's actually http24_access_log.5
and tomorrow the active log will be http24_access_log.6 until seven days have passed, in which
case it will revert back to the expected http24_access_log, and repeat this process over the
next seven days.  I have not found a reason for this so far, but I am interested in figuring
out whether there is an answer to it other than "why are you still using RHEL6?"

We have upgraded Apache 2.2 version to Apache 2.4.34 version on Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server
release 6.10 (Santiago) server . After the upgrade the log is not rotating  and we also check
the log rotation file config looks good .

Can some one help me to figure out the issue..

Below is the config details of log rotation policy. Location of the file : /etc/logrotate.d/httpd24-httpd

/var/log/httpd24/*log {
    rotate 90
      /sbin/service httpd24-httpd reload > /dev/null 2>/dev/null || true

The config locations are different after the upgrade

Configuration File location : /opt/rh/httpd24/root/etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf
Command to stop/start/restart : service httpd24-httpd start/stop/restart

Thanks in Advance !!
