SecAst logs not rotating

SecAst logs do not rotate when logrotate runs every night. How do I fix this?

Re: SecAst logs not rotating

The SecAst log file or its parent directory has world write permissions, and newer versions of logrotate do not allow this to rotate. Manually running logrotate shows the results below:

$logrotate -d -v secast
reading config file secast
Handling 1 logs
rotating pattern: /var/log/secast after 1 days (7 rotations)
empty log files are rotated, old logs are removed
considering log /var/log/secast
error: skipping "/var/log/secast" because parent directory has insecure permissions


The solution is to uncomment the line in the /etc/logrotate.d/secast file to allow rotating regardless of permission:

Code: Select all

su root root
