If the table is empty, refer to Create a new virtual host.
To include a time or date stamp in the file name when the log
file is rotated, in the Log file name field,
variables to the file name. Surround each variable with percentage

When the server instance rotates the HTTP log file, the rotated
file name contains the date stamp. For example, if the server

If you do not include a time and date stamp, the rotated log
files are numbered in order of creation

At the time that you specify, the server rotates the current
log file. If the time that you specify has already past, then
the server starts its file rotation immediately. Thereafter, the
server rotates the log file at an interval that you specify in
Rotation interval. Use the following
java.text.SimpleDateFormat format to specify a
date and time: MM-DD-yyyy-k:mm:ss.
