My Apache logrotate config looks like this:
[... rest stripped for brevity ...]
This works great, except that the date on the rotated filename is one period later than the period actually covered by the logs, for example
error_log.2012.09 covers 2012-08-01 to 2012-08-31.
I realize that there are other options for Apache (eg. cronolog), but I have a bunch of other logs that I also need to rotate, and logrotate is really exactly what I need apart from this one issue.
Is there a way to get logrotate to use a date offset -- or, even better, figure out the previous time period -- when generating the rotated filename?
