    Hi I hope someone can help me with my logrotate problems. Last week it rotated fine and today the logs were not rotated please see my force log rotation errors below; i dont understand why it cant rename or create, the file permissions havnt changed.

    error: failed to rename /var/log/messages to /var/log/messages.1: Operation not permitted
    error: error creating output file /var/log/messages: Operation not permitted

    any help will be appreciated.
