Hello,

I have giant log files in "/usr/local/apache/logs",
access_log - 20 GB
modsec_audit.log - 8,5 GB

Can I delete them?

Thank you very much.

Not that helpful.
As mentioned in another thread, CWP provide a GUI to help you utilise logrotate.

Hey, if you will delete log files you can lost your working WEB server. Stop it, guys. You must not delete anything you did not create!
Just clean the big logs or configure logrotate. The simplest logrotate config below:

Code: [Select]
# Logrotate CWP
/usr/local/apache/domlogs/*.log {
        compress
        delaycompress
        daily
        missingok
}
/usr/local/apache/logs/*.log {
        compress
        delaycompress
        daily
        missingok
}
You can ask me to solve any problem with your server for some money in pm  ;)
