Re: rotatate logs - Apache has anyone got this to rotate at a specific time?

tried it on both Apache 1.3 and 2.0 no dice
 
86400 basically rotates it every 24 hours.

I am having issues trying to even force a log rotation.
 
So much fun so little time.

Which version of apache is it?

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/programs/rotatelogs.html

states that "if the rotation time is 86400, the log file will be rotated every 
night at midnight", although:

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/programs/rotatelogs.html

does not.  It should be easy enough to grab/use the rotatelogs from a newer 
version of apache though.

You also need to consider when midnight is -- it has options for making it run 
in localtime or at specific UTC offsets, but by default it runs in UTC.
