Logs not rotating


The log files in /var/log/httpd are not rotating. What should I check? Is there a was to run the rotation manually?

Here's what's in /etc/logrotate.conf
Code:
# see "man logrotate" for details
# rotate log files weekly
weekly

# keep 4 weeks worth of backlogs
rotate 4

# create new (empty) log files after rotating old ones
create

# uncomment this if you want your log files compressed
#compress

# RPM packages drop log rotation information into this directory
include /etc/logrotate.d

# no packages own wtmp -- we'll rotate them here
/var/log/wtmp {
    monthly
    minsize 1M
    create 0664 root utmp
    rotate 1
}

# system-specific logs may be also be configured here.

You need to post the contents of the /etc/logrotate.d directory.

You certainly can run the rotate manually, using the -f option to logrotate if I remember right. Check the compare for full details, but if it's just the httpd logs then as above I would be looking at the httpd config in logrotate.d, if it even exists.

    missingok
    notifempty
    sharedscripts
    postrotate
        /bin/kill -HUP `cat /var/run/httpd.pid 2>/dev/null` 2> /dev/null || true

So run logrotate manually, and see what the verbose output says about the config files as they are written. Are other files bring successfully rotated?

logrotate use cron to rotate. If you don't install cron packages, log will not rotated.
/etc/cron.daily/logrotate

Make sure below packages are installed
crontabs.noarch
vixie-cron.i386
