logrotate z-way-server has wrong file mode

Post by ibjr »

After installing R3.0.0 the log file var/log/z-way-server does not rotate anymore so the file keeps growing in size over time.
It turns out that the mode of file /etc/logrotate.d/z-way-server is 0664.
Logrotate requires file mode 0644 or 0444

Manually changing the file mode solves the problem, but maybe this can be included in the installation scripts?

I knew it was broken, as I had a file exceeding 900MB

sudo chmod 0644 /etc/logrotate.d/z-way-server

Thankyou to ibjr

ran chmod, now -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 231 Apr 28 02:03 z-way-server

Group write access affects logrotate?

seems so, it wasn't working since 3.0.6
I did the old fix, sudo chmod 0644 /etc/logrotate.d/z-way-server
now its working.

I just looked in z-way-3.0.6_armhf.deb (downloaded on 28th April 2020) Extracting with 7-Zip
Found the file. C:\Z-Wave\Firmware\z-way-3.0.6_armhf.deb\data.tar\.\etc\logrotate.d\z-way-server
and the 'mode' column shows it with permissions -rw-rw-r--

All other files in the PI4 logrotate folder are set with permissions -rw-r--r-- (644)
and they work.
