Hi Payam,

I’ve checked cronjob. And I didn’t use log rotate. I just use awstats to
analysis logs and purge nginxlog.
Is there any script special I need to check?

That does sound like the default behavior of Debian for cron and
logrotate. Check /etc/crontab for the 6:25AM entry:

25 6 * * * root test -x /usr/sbin/anacron || ( cd / && run-parts
–report /etc/cron.daily )

and check for /etc/cron.daily/logrotate and /etc/logrotate.d/nginx.
