Remove old error log files

Tag: unix Author: cmybx Date: 2009-09-27

error_log files in /var/log/httpd/ are consuming a lot of disk space.

There are error_log.1, error_log.2 files as well. I will like to delete the old files automatically and keep only the current one.

Remember that serverfault.com exists for such questions.

You might want to investigate logrotate.

comments:

In this case, it seems as though the logs are already being rotated -- they should investigate what their current log rotation strategy is, and modify it.
