For most distros, save the configuration file to /etc/logrotate.d/mythpreviewgen

Log rotation with --logpath logging

This configuration will work with standard MythTV logging using the --logpath argument.

/var/log/mythtv/mythpreviewgen*.log {
        weekly
        rotate 8
        missingok
        ifempty
        nocreate
        nocompress
        sharedscripts
        olddir /var/log/mythtv/old
        lastaction
                find /var/log/mythtv/old -name 'mythpreviewgen*' -type f -mtime +30 -delete
        endscript
}   


Log rotation with --syslog logging

This logrotate configuration will only work with specific log file names. If you use the --logpath argument to mythpreviewgen, the log file name will include date and process ID information, meaning it will be different for each run of mythpreviewgen. Therefore, this approach can only be used if you configure mythpreviewgen (meaning you've configured mythbackend) to use syslog logging and configure syslog to use static file names.
