Hi Zbigniew,

I started investigating logrotate but someone put me on to newsyslog
Newsyslog is part of the FreeBSD and amazing simple to setup:

1) vi /etc/newsyslog.conf

2) Add the following line:

/var/log/httpd/*.log www:www         644  60    *   @T00    BJG

I would recommend reading man pages newsyslog newsyslog.conf for more
