    After upgrading to EA4 and then deciding to downgrade to try to use http/2 I've noticed an ea4.strace file in my root that is 17G in size and filling up my root partition. Can I delete this file?

    Perhaps this is the answer and that the file may be safe to delete. I already downloaded it as a backup and deleted it. Had to - 99% full!

    Hello,

    Yes, it's safe to remove strace log output files. Did you open a support ticket with us, or with your provider/system administrator before this file appeared? It's possible the file was leftover during troubleshooting, as the EasyApache 4 conversion process itself shouldn't generate such a file.

    Thank you.

    Yes - I opened a ticket but not before the file appeared. It was for the conversion to ea4 not working properly. After installation I realized I needed to revert. Not sure if this file appeared before or after the reversion. Thanks for responding to me here. Hope this helps someone else and avoids a support ticket too, lol.
