how to logrotate auth.log files?
 
Hi guys,

I'm a bit new in creating logrotate files, but, is this the proper way to do it?

/var/log/auth.log {
missingok
daily
mail www@site.org
compress
rotate 4
}

Thanks.

Looks good.
You may find the mail command doesn't send it outside of your box tho'

You could use nail..
eg..
postrotate
/usr/bin/nail -s "Dansguardian access.log" -a /var/log/dansguardian/access.log.1.gz -A andrzej www@site.org < /root/dg.msg
endscript

It requires detailing the -A account used and a message file to provide text fot the email body.
