Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've run into this; I think I "solved" it by restarting apache instead of just HUPing it. You might also try logrotate's "copytruncate" option. Now, subscribing to this topic because I want to know a better way..
thanks AlucardZero, ive restarted httpd, not just HUP'd it manually and it did seem to work, until next time it ran and HUP'd from cron.
What bothers me is that these machines are identical, suffered from the same issue, but one is fixed and one isnt. Im starting to think theres a bug somewhere. The 'easy way' would be to rewrite the logrotate conf to restart httpd but its a bodge, not a solution.
Im also aware of 'copytruncate' but using this method means loging some logs. Im not sure i want to do that.
