Question Apache Config Files

Currently our Apache log files are huge, I want to put say a month's time limit on this, then when it hits the end of the month I would like it to start over writing.

Does anyone know where the config file is for this and what its called? I also want to do exactly the same on wtmp config (who command) file (but again no clue of how or where to find it).

Many Thanks! Smilie

Apache Log Size


Try using the rotatelogs command which might
look like the following:

access_log "| rotatelogs /path/to/logs/access_log 2592000"

It should be located in your ../apache/bin folder.
The man page for complete details is at:
