Historic way to implement log rotation
The balance of this technote appears for historic reference.
Here is a sample shell script to rotate the ezproxy.log file with versions of EZproxy 2.2 and later running on Linux:
#!/bin/sh # Sample log file rotation script # Works with EZproxy 2.2 and later # Change the directory below as relevant cd /usr/local/ezproxy NF=ezproxy.log.`date +%Y%m%d.%H%M%S` # Rename current log file mv ezproxy.log $NF # Tell EZproxy to reopen a new ezproxy.log file ./ezproxy log # Compress old log file gzip $NF
If you save this script under a name such as /usr/local/ezproxy/rotate, then configure it to run using cron.
