I don't know if it's best practice, but the method I use on
the servers at the company where I work and at home is:
+ Log everything with daily W3C format for large sites
+ Use the Incremental option in webalizer
+ Add old logfiles to a ZIP-file
I.E. My personal server gives me logfiles from 15-20 MB each
day. I zip the old files to monthly zip-files. These files
are about 30MB in size, which is much smaller that the 525MB.
