Does somebody use rotatelogs.exe or cronolog.exe on Apche/Windows?
I have tried every switch and parameter but can't get any of these 2 log rotators to work.

CustomLog "|bin/rotatelogs /var/logs/logfile 5M" common
CustomLog "|C:/path/to/bin/rotatelogs /var/logs/logfile 5M" common
CustomLog "|C:/path/to/bin/rotatelogs C:/logs/logfile 5M" common

Tried almost everything...nothing works Sad

Does someone have a (working) example?

Yep, try to specifify the time between log file rotations in seconds.

Example every hour:

CustomLog "|c:/apache2/bin/rotatelogs.exe c:/apache2/logs/test.log 3600" common

Btw, why not use http://www.hexten.net/mod_log_rotate/ ?

Seems like Cronolog is working now.
I use following line in httpd.conf:

CustomLog "|bin/cronolog.exe logs/%Y/%m/%d/access.log" common

Everything works.

However, I want to store my log files on my D-drive, so I use:

CustomLog "|bin/cronolog.exe d:/logs/%Y/%m/%d/access.log" common

Restarted Apache without problems but nothing is written on my D-drive.
In my error.log I see:

'piped log program 'bin/cronolog.exe d:/logs/%Y/%m/%d/access.log' failed unexpectedly'

Permissions on this folder are ok. Something wrong with the syntax (or quotes) in my Customlog line?
