How to setup log rotation for Dispatcher on Apache 2.2
Note: You need at least Dispatcher version 4.0.1. Older versions of the dispatcher module for Apache do not support piped logs
Here is a sample configuration for dispatcher in httpd.conf:
... <IfModule disp_apache2.c> # location of the configuration file. eg: 'conf/dispatcher.any' DispatcherConfig conf/dispatcher.any # location of the dispatcher log file. eg: 'logs/dispatcher.log' DispatcherLog '|/usr/local/apache/bin/rotatelogs /var/logs/%Y-%m-%d-dispatcher.log 86400 -240' # log level for the dispatcher log # 0 Errors # 1 Warnings # 2 Infos # 3 Debug DispatcherLogLevel 1 # if turned to 1, the dispatcher looks like a normal module DispatcherNoServerHeader 0 # if turned to 1, request to / are not handled by the dispatcher # use the mod_alias then for the correct mapping DispatcherDeclineRoot 0 # if turned to 1, the dispatcher uses the URL already processed # by handlers preceeding the dispatcher (i.e. mod_rewrite) # instead of the original one passed to the web server. DispatcherUseProcessedURL 0 </IfModule> ...
To implement similar functionality with older versions of dispatcher:
- Refer to http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/logs.html
- Note: apache will have to be restarted per every log rotation
Dispatcher > 4.0.1
