Logrotate conf: unexpted text


I recently added another conf file to /etc/logrotate.d to rotate some logs I keep for work. Problem is that every time it runs the script, I recieve the following error:
Code:
error: customlogs:3 unexpected text
I've read through the man pages and everything looks to be in order to me. Can someone point me in the right direction?
Code:
[root@localhost root]# cat /etc/logrotate.d/customlogs
/home/php/logs/log1 /home/php/logs/log2 /home/php/logs/log3 /home/php/logs/log4 {
     missingok
     errors root
     rotate 6
     weekly
     nocompress
     postrotate
          /usr/bin/killall -HUP syslogd
     endscript
}

Looks OK to me.
What's the output running "logrotate -d -v /etc/logrotate.d/customlogs"?

Code:
[root@localhost root]# logrotate -d -v /etc/logrotate.d/customlogs
reading config file /etc/logrotate.d/customlogs
reading config info for /home/php/logs/log1 /home/php/logs/log2 /home/php/logs/log3 /home/php/logs/log4
/etc/logrotate.d/customlogs: 3: the errors directive is deprecated and no longer used.
error: /etc/logrotate.d/customlogs:3 unexpected text

Handling 1 logs

rotating pattern: /home/php/logs/log1 /home/php/logs/log2 /home/php/logs/log3 /home/php/logs/log4  weekly (6 rotations)
empty log files are rotated, old logs are removed
considering log /home/php/logs/log1
  log does not need rotating
considering log /home/php/logs/log2
  log does not need rotating
considering log /home/php/logs/log3
  log does not need rotating
considering log /home/php/logs/log4
  log /home/php/logs/log4 does not exist -- skipping

Since you posted only the output and no comments, line 3 says "the errors directive is deprecated and no longer used.", so comment out the "errors root" line.

That did the trick. Odd since I pulled that directive from the man page. Guess its an old man page. Thanks for your help.
