Our development team went to start HTTPD and got this:
Starting httpd: (20)Not a directory: httpd: could not open error log file /etc/httpd/logs/error_log. Unable to open logs [FAILED]
Upon investigation we noticed that the
logs symlink within
/etc/httpd was a file, OK, so resymlinked. Then noticed that the symlink wasn't the right colour:
So, went to investigate the
/var/log/ folder and found something strange... All of the logs are 0 bytes, all changed at the same time yesterday evening, and all of the log folders that should be folders are now 0 byte files too. See below screenshot for comparison with another (almost identical) server:
Any ideas on what would cause this? It's a virtual machine, and no others have been affected in an even remotely similar way, so I'm not sure that the hardware (which is also new) is failing at this stage.
