Rotating logs

From: Simon Bryan <>

I am new in here, but have checked all the on-line docs I can find.
I read in the FAQ and elswhere that I can rotate the logs with the
kill -USR1 command, and that I should just be able to type:
kill -USR1 'cat pathname/'

However this just yields an 'unknown pid' (or similar wording)
errror. I would like to have this in my daily cron, but can't seem to
get it working.

Any help appreciated,
