NAME

       monthly - httpd log rotation for wwwstat

SYNOPSIS

       monthly

DESCRIPTION

       THIS PROGRAM MUST ONLY BE RUN ONCE PER MONTH!  DURING THE FIRST WEEK It
       assumes a lot, like that you use wwwstat and archive your logfiles once
       per month.  You will need to configure it for your server before it can
       be used.

       Reads the logfile (assumed to contain more than one month’s worth of
       WWW common logfile entries) and moves the prior month’s entries into a
       separate file.  The new file is created on TMPDIR (to avoid filling up
       the disk), compressed using gzip, and then moved to the archive
       directory.  The program also restarts the httpd server.
