Log files in /var/log/apache2/ are too big. I want to limit the file size. Is it possible to store only the recent 100 lines?

Thanks.

Take a look here:

You can save a logfile per day and delete old ones automatically with a cronjob. The lines can be done with a limitation of the file size (I think it is not necessary of it will be 120 or 100 lines?).
