logrotate


I want to manipulate log files so, i think logrotate is the best solution, isn't.

But how does it work, could you point to me a good howto?

Take a look at the file /etc/logrotate.conf. Everything about logrotate that you might want to change is in /etc/logrotate.conf. Also read:
man logrotate
