find all the current log file with date and copy to a specific folder.
 
Hi,
I want to fetch all the current updated files in a directory and copy them to another without using the name of each files.
PHP Code:

userls -head -n1 

This command only gives a file which is last updated. want to all the files with current date and time and copy them.

PHP Code:

userls -lrt
total 60
-rw-------   1 root     sys            0 Mar 17  2009 authlog
drwxr
-xr-x   2 root     sys          512 Oct  9  2009 pool
drwxr
-xr-x   2 root     sys          512 Oct  9  2009 swupas
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other         27 Oct  9  2009 brlog
-rw-r--r--   1 root     root        2192 Oct  9  2009 postrun.log
drwxr
-xr-x   3 root     sys          512 Oct 12  2009 webconsole
-rw-r--r--   1 root     other       1363 Dec 20  2011 sysidconfig.log
-rw-------   1 root     root       20262 Jun 17 16:11 in.iked.log
-rw-r--r--   1 root     root          23 Jun 17 16:11 snmpd.log 

for eg. last two files which is updated on the same time.

Can any one have the command to do this in shell ?

Thanks

Try looking at the options to the find command

The 'touch' command using the '-t' option can create a file with an arbitrary date and time stamp.
The 'find' command in conjunction with the '-newer' option can make use of such a file.

What do you mean by "current"? June 17 is not exactly the current date. Do you mean:
  • The files that were updated today
  • The files that were updated in the current minute
  • Something else?

You could do this with syslog.
This way, the syslog-server host would always have the 'latest' copy of any file you choose. In fact, it updates the remote copy in near real-time.

Ask if you want more info on the specifics.
But here's a startup set for 2 files (apache2 access and error).
There's no reason it can't be done for files in /var/log also.
