Hi!
I have the following situation, i have a php project containerized with apache 2.4, trying to setup rotatelogs, I want access logs for each day separated.
When I test locally it works without problem, but when I deploy it to Azures App Service it wont work, apache creates the log file, exactly how I named it with the date (ex. log_2024_03_31.log) but stays 0 byte, the default access.log gets updated.

Is this something Azure done to use their own log manager system? (Log Analytics Workspace) for which I have to pay, not a problem, I just spent many hours trying to troubleshoot the problem:)

Thanks!

Sure, here is a snippet from the apache conf. file:

Code:
LogFormat "%v:%p %h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %O \"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User-Agent}i\"" custom
CustomLog "|/usr/bin/rotatelogs -l /var/log/apache2/lat_%Y_%m_%d.log 86400" custom


I leaning towards a permission issue, its just not clear to me how that works, the container has root permissions(def.), apache has www-data set as user/group. When setup on Azure the logsfiles are created under nouser/nogroup, unable to set any different from the container as root.
