Description

Suricata by default creates an application log at /var/log/suricata/suricata.log. This log file is created before changing uid and remains owned by root. After log rotation and a subsequent command to "reopen-log-files", this file is closed, but never re-opened as it can't be opened for modification by the non-root user that Suricata is now being run as.

This does not affect Suricata event logging as those files are opened after the uid is changed.

I think the only way to handle this is to change ownership of the file before the uid change so it can be re-opened.
