I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Look for the 'logrotation' script that you should have created a cron for. If you open the script in an editor(vi, pico, nano) you should see:


Change that to the number of days worth of logs you would like to keep.

You were close enough to send me in the right direction, in /etc/logrotate.d/dansguardian it said...

/var/log/dansguardian/access.log {
        rotate 5
                /etc/init.d/dansguardian stop > /dev/null 2>&1 || true
                /etc/init.d/dansguardian start  > /dev/null 2>&1

I changed the rotate from 5 to 31. Thanks.
