    Currently cPanel has the option to have them deleted after processing. But I cannot find an option to have then archived the way apache log files are archived after the reach a certain size.

    Monthly archiving is possible by enabling the following option: cPanel: Main >> Logs >> Raw Access Logs >> Configure Logs >> Archive logs in your home directory at the end of each stats run

    In addition to the aforementioned option in cPanel, domain access logs (domlogs) can be rotated monthly if the following two options, set via WebHost Manager, are configured as shown below: WHM: Main >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings >> Stats and Logs
    • Delete each domain’s access logs after stats run
      • On (default)
      • Select: Off
    • Keep monthly log files [?] Keep log files at the end of the month (Off is the default because you can run out of disk space quickly)
      • Select: On
      • Off (default)

    For additional important information please read the following PDF document entitled cPanel & WHM Log Processing and Configuration (.pdf), from the Version 11.25 Release Notes; in the PDF, please see section 3.2., "Rotation & Retention," on pages 5 and 6, and section 4.2., "Log Rotation" and more narrowly "Domain Log Rotation," on page 9.
