I did some more digging on the whole log piping thing and apache =
includes a nifty little application called rotatelogs which lives in =
/usr/local/sbin/rotatelogs on my system that I built form the ports. =
=46rom the man page:

NAME=20
	 rotatelogs - Piped logging program to rotate Apache logs=20
SYNOPSIS
	rotatelogs [ -l ] [ -f ] logfile rotationtime|filesizeM [ offset =
]=20
SUMMARY=20
	rotatelogs is a simple program for use in conjunction with =
Apache's piped logfile feature. It supports rotation based on a time =
interval or maximum size of the log.

It looks pretty simple to use just create your log format directive =
like:

	LogFormat "%t \"%r\" %>s \"%{Referer}i\" %b" SpecialFormat

	CustomLog "| /usr/local/sbin/rotatelogs =
/var/log/httpd-access.log 86400" SpecialFormat

I hope that helps. I know I shall be experimenting with this one =
tomorrow.=20
