why don't you use the file /etc/logfiles
with the following syntax. I know it is not a real daily rotate, but we for
example backup the log after 16MB size, which looks like
/var/log/squid/access.log +16384k 644 squid.nogroup

A script which could be used is in /etc/cron.daily with the name aaa_base
which reads the /etc/logfiles. I think you only have to adapt it, to work
in real daily mode, if you delete the line with the size-check, modify the
rest, and then it should rotate every day.
