logrotate httpd logfiles

Hi,
I need to logrotate logs in directories in /var/log/httpd/. There are 4 directories in /var/log/httpd/... these directories are /var/log/httpd/access/
/var/log/httpd/debug/
/var/log/httpd/error/
/var/log/httpd/required/
Each of the access, required, error and debug directories have around 20 to 30 access log files of different locations for example:mumbai-access.log, pune-access.log etc..same is the case for 'error' dir 'required' dir and 'debug' dir in /var/log/httpd/
I need to clean up the logfiles in all the 4 directories access, error, debug and required...
I have made a custom logrotate file as follows:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Code:
# vi /etc/logrotate.d/httpd-logs
/var/log/httpd/access/*.monitor.com-access_log 
{
weekly
missingok
nocreate
postrotate
find /var/log/httpd/access -name '*.monitor.com-access_log' -type f -mtime +7 -print | xargs /bin/rm -rf
endscript 
}
/var/log/httpd/error/*.monitor.com-error_log
{
weekly
missingok
nocreate
postrotate
find /var/log/httpd/error -name '*.monitor.com-error_log' -type f -mtime +7 -print | xargs /bin/rm -rf
endscript 
}
/var/log/httpd/request/*.monitor.com-ssl_request_log
{
weekly
missingok
nocreate
postrotate
find /var/log/httpd/request -name '*.monitor.com-ssl_request_log' -type f -mtime +7 -print | xargs /bin/rm -rf
endscript 
}
/var/log/httpd/debug/*.monitor.com-rw_log
{
weekly
notifempty
missingok
compress
}

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Is the above config correct?
Am I missing something? Will this logrotate the files in /var/log/httpd/access, /var/log/httpd/error, /var/log/httpd/required and /var/log/httpd/error ?
do i need to include following line in postrotate " /bin/kill -HUP `cat /var/run/httpd.pid 2>/dev/null` 2> /dev/null || true" ?
