    HAAst logs do not rotate when logrotate runs – why?

    The HAAst log file or its parent directory has world write permissions, and newer versions of logrotate do not allow this to rotate. Manually running logrotate shows the results below:

    $logrotate -d -v haast
    reading config file haast
    Handling 1 logs
    rotating pattern: /var/log/haast after 1 days (7 rotations)
    empty log files are rotated, old logs are removed
    considering log /var/log/haast
    error: skipping “/var/log/haast” because parent directory has insecure permissions

    The solution is to uncomment the line in the /etc/logrotate.d/haast file to allow rotating regardless of permission:

    su root root
