|rotation + date in file name with crontab shellscript|
A friend asked me this:
I need to create a command for crontab containing this:
'cp access.log xxxxxx.log' where xxxxxx represents the output from date
in any format, preferably YYMMDD or YYYYMMDD.
I will set crontab to execute this daily at 23:59:59 saving the day's
access log before it is replaced at 00:00:00
Think you could steer me the right way here?
Now, I could do this with a perl/shell combo, but how would one write a script to do this in straight shell?
