Logrotate

Hi,

I want to have logrotate name my rotated apache logs with today's date (e.g., access_log.092804.gz instead of access_log.1.gz).

I am sure some combination of things in /etc/logrotate.d/apache will do the trick, either pre-rotation or post-rotation, etc.  Can anyone help?

Thanks!

-Mike

Here is my current logrotate settings:

/var/log/httpd/access_log {
    daily
    missingok
    rotate 31
    sharedscripts
    postrotate
        /bin/kill -HUP `cat /var/run/httpd.pid 2>/dev/null` 2> /dev/null || true
    endscript
    compress
}

What you are searching is

      dateext
              Archive  old  versions of log files adding a daily extension like YYYYMMDD instead of
              simply adding a number.

option of logrotate
man logrotate

/var/log/httpd/access_log {
    daily
    dateext
    missingok
    rotate 31
    sharedscripts
    postrotate
        /bin/kill -HUP `cat /var/run/httpd.pid 2>/dev/null` 2> /dev/null || true
    endscript
    compress
}
