Simply put, this will backup the server.log file to a directory, and then clear the existing server.log file. This is to reduce RAM usage of the server host and effectively reduce lag for server players.

Most of the functions in this are configurable, such as backup location, time delay between backups, choice of Size and Time rotations and more!
