We are not currently rotating our logs, which means the log files are growing very large over time. We should set it up, and also make sure AWStats still works afterwards.

Both skynet and dev now have logrotate rotating their web logs weekly. The default Apache2 logs were already being rotated—I just had to add the virtual host logs in /var/www/vhosts.

I also updated the skynet Apache2 logrotate script to invoke the update-webstats in a prerotate block, so that no log entries are lost due to rotation.

I will need to closely monitor the cron output for the next couple of weeks to make sure the rotations are working, and that AWStats is still being updated.
