http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/logs.html#rotation basically tells you to rotate your logs manually when they get too big. Enhance that doc to mention rotatelogs as well as other standard ways to rotate log files.

Hi Rich,

I noticed that rotatelogs is mentioned at the bottom of http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/logs.html#rotation. Would it be enough in your opinion? Otherwise we could add a reference to other standard tools like logrotate.
