# Slightly modified by document author.

#
#  This script will preserve the normally rotated and
#+ thrown away weblogs from a default RedHat/Apache installation.
#  It will save the files with a date/time stamp in the filename,
#+ bzipped, to a given directory.
#
#  Run this from crontab nightly at an off hour,
#+ as bzip2 can suck up some serious CPU on huge logs:
#  0 2 * * * /opt/sbin/archiveweblogs.sh
