Severity: wishlist


One way of logging in Icinga Web2 is into files (the other being into syslog).
So it would be nice, if the package could contain a:
which is automatically set to be owned by the icingaweb2 group (which in turn
allows rather easy integration with the various PHP SAPIs, by simply adding
whichever effective user the code actually runs as, to that group :) ).

It would further be nice, if a logrotate script for the default logfile
/var/log/icingaweb2/icingaweb2.log (this is what the webinterface suggests)
would be in place.
Ideally with the option "notifempty" so that users which don't choose to do
file based logging, get an empty rotated file :)
Of course "missingok" is also needed.

Admittedly I'm a bit uncertain as for how the rotation should work (lograte
has different modes):
At least with CGI SAPI, the logfile must of course always be reopened on
every request,… so one can simply move the logfile to be rotated and doesn't
have to create or truncate.
IIRC, the options should then be nocopy AND nocopytruncate (in order to override
any possible global defaults).
But I don't know how things work with the Apache Module SAPI of PHP.
