    SecAst logs do not rotate when logrotate runs every night. How do I fix this?

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

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

    su root root
