how do i rotate my apache logs

Quote:# LogFile defines the web server log file to use. If not specified# here or on on the command line, input will default to STDIN. If

# the log filename ends in '.gz' (ie: a gzip compressed file), it will

# be decompressed on the fly as it is being read.

LogFile /usr/local/apache/logs/access_log

Well attempting to specify it in the file will plainly fail, however it gives us a clue of a way around it:


cat /usr/local/apache/logs/access_log* | webalizer


Using stdin we can simply pipe the information into webalizer. Of course if the logs get compressed then we would have a slightly different command.


Anyway that should capture all the logs and rotated logs, I guess that order is unimportant as the log file actually has that information on every line.
