I'm successfully using Logwatch for Tomcat and Apache but not for JBoss. For some reason Logwatch can not access any files under the JBoss directory. Is there anything I can do to make this work? I'm trying to use Logwatch with JBoss nohup.out and server.log

Note - I can copy the JBoss log file to another directory outside of the JBoss directory and Logwatch can read the file.

I was considering using Logrotate to copy the log files to another directory but there appears to be issues in using Logrotate with JBoss logs.
