    Thanks for your fast help.

    Can i do the same steps:
    cd /usr/local/apache
    mv domlogs /home/domlogs
    cd /home
    ln -s domlogs /usr/local/apache/domlogs

    to /usr/local/apache/logs too?

    Thanks,
    Wilson

    Hello Wilson,

    Those logs don't normally fill up much space and I wouldn't recommend moving them. It's up to you if you want to do so, but there's little point when they aren't typically large files.

    Thanks!

    700MB isn't a large amount of data when many drives are in the TB nowadays. How large is your /var and /usr if you consider 700MB to be a large amount of data?
