Replace log4j appender value

I'm looking in our 5.2.3 install of Jira and I found that the log4j.properties file has this setting:

log4j.appender.filelog=com.atlassian.jira.logging.MultiTenantJiraHomeAppender

I was looking to replace this with DailyRollingFileAppender so that I can start rotating our logs (according to this: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRAKB/How+to+Rotate+Catalina+Log+File)

I'm hesitent to replace this MultiTenant appender since I'm not fully sure if it might break anything, but, judging from this: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-26535 I don't think MultiTenant is being used. Would I be correct in this assumtion?

Hi Kelvin,

Feel free to change this to log4j.appender.filelog=org.apache.log4j.RollingFileAppender

Nothing should break.
