Logrotate - Rrror Running Postrotate Script

The best way is to edit /etc/cron.daily/logrotate and add a line at the top to use a different temp directory.

TMPDIR=/tmp_safe for example.

Also The man on logrotate says you can put shell commands between the "prerotate" and "endscript" sections of the configuration file. So you could try putting something like:


In the configuration files in /etc/logrotate.d.
