Updating the logrotate feature

The automatic procedure to archive NoMachine dated log files (log rotation) needs to be updated in order to fit the new implementation sported by

Logrotation needs to take care of log files stored in user's home directory or in the directory specified by the CommonLogDirectory key in node.cfg.

The log archives will be saved in var/log/logrotate under the NoMachine installation directory:
/usr/NX/var/log on Linux
%PROGRAMDATA%/NoMachine/var/log on Windows
/Library/Application Support/NoMachine/var/log on macOS

and named as:

nxserver.log-user for log archive from user's home/.nx
nxserver.log for log archive from  NX/var/log/
nxserver.log-common for log archive from the directory specified in the CommonLogDirectory key

Server commands for using logrotation remains the same, see

Notify me when the FR is implemented.
