I have an Apache Tomcat running on CentOS7 server which had a file
catalina.out of around 157MB in size. I was trying to download that file on my local system so I ran the
tar -czf command but I accidentally ran the command in reverse direction:
tar -czf $CATALINA_HOME/logs/catalina.out catalina.out.gz
Which emptied the entire log file. I tried to restore the file but couldn't get success.
I saw the swap file so tried to restore the content like:
vim -r $CATALINA_HOME/logs/catalina.out
But this didn't work. Is there a way I can rollback the logs?
