Squid, as shipped with Red Hat Linux 8.0, is pre-configured to rotate its logs on a weekly basis using a logrotate cron job (/etc/logrotate.d/squid).

Hmm, I pointed you to /etc/logrotate.d/squid. The documentation for logrotate is in "man logrotate". If you want to edit any Squid files manually, you're free to use your favourite text editor for that.
