What is the preferred method, and best practice to configure apache for Windows and how to rotate logs every day so the access.log files do not get big or any other logs for that matter? I would like to rotate them everyday.

I use cronolog, which does it midnight:

CustomLog "|D:/Apache_files/cronolog.exe D:/logs//access_%Y-%m-%d.log" combined

I use mod_log_rotate. To be fair it doesn't work with the error log.

Is cronolog part of Apache? I see a rotatelog.exe but no nothing related to cronolog in the Apache folders.

No cronolog isn't while rotatelogs.exe[1] is part of it.
