Free BSD : newsyslog setup for Hourly log rotate

Hi,
I am trying to rotate logs every hour using newsyslog

I have following in /etc/newsyslog.conf
# logfilename               [owner:group]    mode count size when [ZJB] [/pid_file]                   [sig_num]
/www/logs/access_log                            644   30       *     *      B     /www/logs/httpsd.pid     30

and I have following crontab
0 * * * *      newsyslog

but it is not rotate logs!
I did restart apache every time I made changes to newsyslog.conf file, but still not working!
When I use @T00 switch for time, it works and rotates every midnight, but what is the switch for every hour?
Please help!

Also is there a way to change the format of logfile name? like force it to create [ access_log.14.1 ] ?
[ which means access log of hour 14, day 1 ]

It works according to your rules - it never trims log mentioned.
"man newsyslog.conf" for more information.
