Re: logrotate not keeping allocated files

Now that I think about it, I was trying to execute

Code: Select all

logrotate -f /etc/logrotate.d/syslog
from root's crontab at midnight specifically on Sundays.

That must have been the problem.

echo -e in italics

I have been able to echo statements in colors for about 5 years. I just today learned of some new escape codes for brighter colors, so that makes me happy. However, the problem is that I have not ever been able to echo statements in italics or strikethrough (which I just learned might also be a poss...

Re: logrotate not keeping allocated files

Thanks TrevorH, I don't believe the snippets I provided are showing that. I will review all other logfiles and confirm that there are not any misplaced directives like you are talking about. THIS is good information to remember, as I was never aware of that myself. Thanks guys. I will keep working o...

Re: logrotate not keeping allocated files

Oh crap! Are you referring to
  • /etc/cron.d
  • /etc/cron.daily
  • /etc/cron.hourly
?

I did not think of checking them, no.

logrotate not keeping allocated files

We are having problems with the logrotate suite not rolling (and more importantly keeping) log files, on a Red Hat 7.9 server. Just one. The logfiles in question are the ones listed within the /etc/logrotate.d/syslog file. The /etc/logrotate.d/syslog was altered by someone where the /var/log/cron en...

Re: Problem: conflicting requests

Because I am asking for direction. I don't know why CentOS installs broken from the start. This may be an aesthetic issue, but I don't know that.
Almost every time I execute a yum update there is a perl module error.

Re: Problem: conflicting requests

It's asking for 5.26 but it is disabled. OK, so I enabled perl-5.24 by executing: dnf module enable perl:5.24 That did not set it as the default, it merely enabled it. There is no obvious dnf subcommand for configuring the default or setting the default perl version that I could find. I tried using...

Re: Problem: conflicting requests

OK, so what do I do? Set 5.24 as default? I didn't do anything but install the OS.
