Description Karel Volný 2013-01-25 11:56:00 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #904059 +++

Description of problem:
Mysql packages do not provide logrotate configuration file.
Looking at bug #647223 comment #16 I understand that as it should be included after the problem with rotating logs gets fixed. The problem got fixed already but we still do not provide /etc/logrotate.d/mysqld

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install mysql-server
2. uncomment the configuration in /etc/logrotate.d/mysqld
3. logrotate -f /etc/logrotate.d/mysqld

Actual results:
2. no file to edit
3. error: cannot stat /etc/logrotate.d/mysqld: No such file or directory

Expected results:
no error; once the server runs and writes logfile, logs get rotated after logrotate call

It looks like we fixed this in Fedora and RHEL5, but the fix never made it into the RHEL6 branch ... which makes this a regression from RHEL5 to RHEL6.  Oops.

Comment 12 Honza Horak 2013-08-09 08:23:24 UTC
How to reproduce:
1) (uncomment related lines in /etc/logrotate.d/mysqld)
2) # logrotate /etc/logrotate.d/mysqld -f
3) # echo $?
4) # ls -l /var/log/mysqld.log*

Actual results:
error: cannot stat /etc/logrotate.d/mysqld: No such file or directory
-rw-r-----. 1 mysql mysql 25910 Aug  9 10:07 /var/log/mysqld.log

Expected results:
-rw-r-----. 1 mysql mysql    0 Aug  9 10:14 /var/log/mysqld.log
-rw-r-----. 1 mysql mysql 2546 Aug  9 10:14 /var/log/mysqld.log.1.gz
