How to rotate /var/log/zimbra.log for 365 days?

Postby xiebo » Thu Feb 23, 2012 2:41 am

I am using Zimbra 7.1 and /var/log directory has 5 files:

zimbra.log

zimbra.log.1.gz

zimbra.log.2.gz

zimbra.log.3.gz

zimbra.log.4.gz
It seems that it could only save the last 4 days /var/log/zimbra.log file.
I want to save the last 365 days /var/log/zimbra.log file. How to do it?

you can edit the rotation script in /etc/logrotate.d/zimbra
Check 'man logrotate' for the script syntax. you probably want to add a 'rotate 365' or somesuch, but I'd doublecheck the man page to make sure. Note that'll also use a lot of disk space. Make sure you have enough. :)
That file will get overwritten by the Zimbra installer any time you upgrade, so you'll need to remember to edit it again after an upgrade.
