We're running Squid as a proxy server with IdentD for logging user names
(clients are Win2000) and it works fine.
In the past, with IIS, every day, the day's before logs were imported to an
MS-Access (scream now) database and some users/urls were pulled out, in
addition to the filtering we do.
It worked really well, but in Squid I'm having trouble doing something
I set up a script to try and stop the Squid Service, copy the access.log
file to `date -I`.txt, and start it again, but occasionally the Squid
service would restart but not keep logging to the access.log file.
Currently, Its logging to the access.log file with no rotate.
Any ideas on the best way of doing this? Personally I'd like to keep ALL old
squid log files forever until I decide to delete them, and have them named
by DATE, as its far easier, so LOG ROTATE wouldn't be all that useful.
Thanks for ANYONES help in this!! Its beginning to get a bit irratating!
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year,
