[CentOS] Apache logs missing

It looks like logrotate changed behaviour and started to delete old logs instead of compressing them.
As you can see it just wiped away the one from 20160327, and that with all configs on default.
Does someone know how to fix this??

On the prod-server I added now "rotate 300" to /etc/logroate.d/httpd to prevent losing more logs. It keeps the logs now but doesn't compress them anymore.

Thanks

Adrian,

I’ve had huge problems with log rotate recently. For some reason, since the period you have mentioned, I have to restart rsyslog on my CentOS 6.7 servers after logrotate runs either through a cronjob or manually (even on the standard config). I’m not sure if you’ve experienced this to or whether they are linked - but there’s definitely been issues since January with logrotate. 

Kindest regards,

James Washington

Hi all  

I just saw that I miss some log files in /var/log/httpd. There is a gap in January/February2016, no logs are available for this period.  
It seemed to work fine with the earlier logs as you can see.  
Has someone an explanation for this?  

It's a Centos 7.2 VM with Apache 2.4 running ownCloud only. Default logrotate config.
