I'm looking at the files under /var/log on CentOS 7... And many of the files have dates included in their names (i.e. secure-20190512)... but the date in their names don't correspond to either the last message written to them... or their modification date... Which in the example of the secure-20190512 file were both May 10th... But the change date the stat command gives does correspond to May 12th
Can someone explain what's going on here? If the file was created and last written too on May 10th... Why does it have a May 12th date in it's name?
