    This might be a logrotate question, but I thought I would start here. In my logrotate.conf it's set up to email the user after the log rotates.

    blah blah blah
    mail someuser@somedomain.com
    }


    User's is not getting an email of the logs. I looked in the mail and the logrotate logs, but have found no hints as to why this might be happening. I don't necessarily need the answer, but an idea on where to look would also be helpful.

    By default the code of the logrotate.conf is as follows:

    include /usr/local/psa/etc/logrotate.d

    /usr/local/psa/admin/logs/*_log {
    weekly
    rotate 12
    missingok
    notifempty
    copytruncate
    compress
    }

    if you want to e-mail this all you have to do is as follows:

    include /usr/local/psa/etc/logrotate.d

    /usr/local/psa/admin/logs/*_log {
    weekly
    rotate 12
    missingok
    notifempty
    copytruncate
    compress
    mail someuser@somedomain.com

    }

    If this does not works let me know what is present in your logrotate.conf so that I can tell you further.

    Thanks.

    This is what I already have.

    /usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/somewhere.com/statistics/logs/*.processed {
    daily
    rotate 50
    nocompress
    missingok
    mail someone@somewhere.com
    }
    /usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/somewhere.com/statistics/logs/error_log {
    daily
    rotate 50
    nocompress
    missingok
    copytruncate
    mail someone@somewhere.com
    }
    /usr/local/psa/home/vhosts/somewhere.com/statistics/logs/error_ssl_log {
    daily
    rotate 50
    nocompress
    missingok
    copytruncate
    mail someone@somewhere.com
    }

    This config is currently not working.

    Can you tell me ti chich mail address you are trying to send it?
    Coz I think it will not send to any othe mail address other than the server, or try sending it to root@servername.

    Telll me if it works, if it works then it indicates that the conf file is working fine.
    Let me know what happens.


    Thanks.
