simple example for the Fedora logrotate utility

This is a minimal logrotate configuration. This will rotate the log file every day for a month (30 days). Put this in /etc/logrotate.d/bash-commands

/var/log/bash-commands.log {
    daily
    rotate 30
    delaycompress
    compress
    notifempty
    missingok
    nomail
}

Two Trivial Log Rotators

General purpose

This one is not finished and is broken... I was trying to write a one-liner log rotator.

#!/bin/sh

#
# This rotates a set of file.
#
maxdays=5;rm -f day${maxdays} ; for i in `seq 1 ${maxdays}`; do num=`expr ${i} - ${maxdays}`;num=`expr ${num} \* -1`;echo "$num";newnum=`expr ${num} + 1`; if [ -f day${num} ]; then mv day${num} day${newnum};fi; done ; touch day1

Trivial Apache log rotation script

This is a trivial log rotator for Apache. Run it from cron monthly to keep 3 months of logs. This isn't so useful these days as most systems now have Red Hat's "logrotate" installed by default.
