Do you wish to do it manually or using a script? Have to done anything so far?
Check utilities like logrotate and also this tutorial.

Hi Azher,

It would be great if you can share what have you tried so far and where you are stuck.

Are you saying you don't want to use logrotate? You can invoke it from a script and run the job in cron.

As Vikas027 is saying, perhaps a bit more elaboration on what exactly you're trying to do and what you have tried thus far will get you some more helpful answers. I know that myself and many others on the forum know a ton about logrotate.
