Yes. Apache's rotatelogs is a better choice than newsyslog. Under heavy
load, the latter can corrupt Apache logs.
rotatelogs also can do changes based on log size, like this:
CustomLog "|/usr/local/sbin/rotatelogs/var/log/httpd-access.log 5M" \
and if you don't like deciphering Unix epoch time, you can embed times
in your log filenames like this:
CustomLog "|/usr/local/sbin/rotatelogs \
/var/log/httpd-access.log.%Y-%m-%d-%H_%M_%S 86400" combined
(n.b. I added the backslashes in the examples here; you want everything
on a single line in your config file.)
