Configuring Apache Log Rotation for Secure Global Desktop Deployments on Oracle Linux

(Doc ID 2287854.1)

Last updated on MARCH 06, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Secure Global Desktop - Version 5.2 to 5.3 [Release 5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Secure Global Desktop (SGD) is bundled with several third party components to facilitate webservices integration and a seamless 'out of the box' experience, including the Apache webserver.

While a standard installation of SGD will automatically rotate the SGD-specific logs, there is no such mechanism for the independent Apache component. This document outlines the procedure to configure Apache log rotation for SGD deployments on Oracle Linux, specifically for the access_log and error_logs, which may grow to a substantial size over time.

Supported Oracle Linux platforms can be found in the Oracle Secure Global Desktop Release Notes at:
