I am trying to deploy an application using the application_php cookbook. Most of it works as expected, but there’s still one detail to set straight before calling it done.
The application logs stuff to data/log/application.log, relative to its root location.
I want the logs to survive deploys, so the obvious thing to do is to have data/log inside the shared/ sirectory, and symlinking one to the other.
I’m doing this through the symlink_before_migrate attribute of the application resource, like such:
‘data’ => ‘’
The weird thing is: it does the symlinking flawlessly, I have current/data linked to shared/data just fine, but everything inside it gets purged, meaning that my logs are gone after each deploy (and the whole data/* subtree for that matter).
I couldn’t find the symlinking code in the application and application_php cookbooks either.
Am I doing something wrong, have I hit a bug that should be ticketed, or something else?
Appreciate your pointers.
