[FASTCGI] logging from fcgi

In short, I print into some /var/log/apache2/myapp.log file from a fcgi application under apache. You can see the configuration changes which I performed after the "====================================" line.

As a result:
in /etc/cron.daily/sysklogd:
Code:

/etc/init.d/sysklogd reload-or-restart > /dev/null

calls:
in /etc/init.d/sysklogd:
Code:

sudo start-stop-daemon --stop --quiet --signal 1 --pidfile /var/run/syslogd.pid --name syslogd

and myapp.fcgi stops writing to myapp.log and it stays like that.

I changed:
in /etc/cron.daily/sysklogd:
Code:

/etc/init.d/sysklogd restart > /dev/null

and now:
Code:

sudo logrotate -f /etc/logrotate.conf

restarts all apache2 processes excepting one and kills myapp.fcgi.

It appears that the combination of apache2, fcgi and syslog makes a perfect mess of my logging. Of course, all system and apache2 native logging works flawlessly. Anybody with some experience in linux, please give me any advice. Do I have a chance to solve this?

===================================================================

Configuration:

I am using Ubuntu 8.04 lts server, Apache web server.

My (fast cgi) application uses:
Code:

#include <syslog.h>
syslog(LOG_LOCAL6|LOG_INFO, "new n= %d;\n", count);

to log some activity messages.
At the end of /etc/syslog.conf I added:
Code:

local6.=info -/var/log/apache2/myapp.log

In /etc/syslog.conf I added to each selector which contained "myapp.log":
Code:

;local6.!=info

like this:
Code:

*.*;auth,authpriv.none;local6.!=info            -/var/log/syslog

and:
Code:

*.=info;*.=notice;*.=warn;\
         auth,authpriv.none;\
         cron,daemon.none;\
         mail,news.none;local6.!=info            -/var/log/messages
