it says here that

http://docs.webfaction.com/software/general.html

Each subsequent day the log is incremented by one, until the log has aged seven days, upon which it is deleted.

any way to configure apache in

myapp/apache2/conf/httpd.conf

so it doesn't delete any log file. i need all my log files to be there forever untill i decide to clean them.

Yes -- all of the logs in the "$HOME/logs" directory are managed automatically by logrotate, which rotates them and deletes them automatically as you are seeing.

If you simply configure your httpd.conf file to store the logs elsewhere (outside of $HOME/logs), then they won't be touched.

Hope that helps!

The default location is used by awstats and others. Is there a way to alter the logrotate.d instead?

@brycenesbitt: The logrotate configuration is global so can't be altered for individual users I'm afraid.
