Subject: Proper way to change the rotation of apache logs?

I would like to adjust the amount of space each apache log can take
up and how many copies are saved. According to RH in this kbase
article
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/FAQ_35_2798.shtm

I want to edit the logrotate.conf file. They even have a listing in
the article for an httpd log file.

------------------------------------------
       "/var/log/httpd/access.log" /var/log/httpd/error.log {
           rotate 5
           mail www my org
           size=100k
           sharedscripts
           postrotate
                                     /sbin/killall -HUP httpd
           endscript
}
------------------------------------------

Is the first line a typo? It makes reference to two different files.
Also the log files in /var/log/httpd/ have an underscore between the
name and log like access_log., error_log.


It is possible to specify more than one file in one logrotate entry -
the configuration will apply to all the files mentioned for that entry. If you are using Apache log file names different from those shown in the
example, you should change them to the names you are using.

Is this the proper format below?

}

"/var/log/httpd/access_log" /var/log/httpd/access_log {
          rotate 1
          size=50M
          sharedscripts
          postrotate
          /sbin/killall -HUP httpd
          endscript
}

"/var/log/httpd/error_log" /var/log/httpd/error_log {
          rotate 1
          size=50M
          sharedscripts
          postrotate
          /sbin/killall -HUP httpd
          endscript
}
