Phillip Pearson - web + electronics notes

tech notes and web hackery from a new zealander who was vaguely useful on the web back in 2002 (see: python community server, the blogging ecosystem, the new zealand coffee review, the internet topic exchange).


Make sure you rotate your logs!

Just found that was down because the etc.log file had hit the filesystem's max file size. Oops!

Update: It's also nice to code your daemons so that they close and reopen their log files when you send them a SIGHUP. Then things like logrotate can do the log rotation work for you.
