Hi all

I've taking over the managing of a Rails system (v. 1.2.3) that has been writing to production.log for several years now, and the log had grown to 16 Gb, taking up half the server disc space.

I removed the logfile, doing:

$sudo mv production.log production.log.old
$sudo touch production.log
$sudo chmod 666 production.log
$sudo rm production.log.old

Everything works fine except my new log file does not get written to. Is there any way to restart logging without restarting Rails? The server is running several Ruby components as well, defined in /lib, and they also write to the production log.

Will I need to restart the Ruby components - or is it sufficient to kill the Rails processes and restart them?

I've enclosed a section of ps aux output

Any help and guidance would be greatly appreciated!
