unfortunately i have still this problem. After a while of testing and 
experimenting i have the problem that nothing is rotated. Logfile is growing 
and growing...

In httpd.conf is following:

LogLevel warn
LogFormat "%v***%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b \"%{Referer}i\" 
\"%{User-Agent}i\"" combined
LogFormat "%{Referer}i -> %U" referer
LogFormat "%{User-agent}i" agent
LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b" common
CustomLog "|/usr/sbin/rotatelogs /www/logs/%Y/%m/%d/access_log 1024M" common
ErrorLog "|/usr/sbin/cronolog --symlink=/www/logs/error_log 

I tried with 1024M for Size or 120 for time-intervall but nothing happens. 
I have just no idea, other logfiles contain no info about error etc.
What to do now?
