    Hello,

    is the folders /home/username/logs essential for some important WHM functions?

    or can i delete flles from these folders?

    Also from /usr/local/apache/domlogs

    i have identic question, but there i want to delete it regularly like monthly, not just onetime.. If it can harm some WHM function

    or i need to trim somehow these files? I want them to be there in domlogs so i can track the issues into history..

    Thank you

    Hello :)

    It's not required for cPanel/WHM to function, but the /home/$username/logs directory stored access logs that the user has decided to archive. The Apache domlogs question is answered on your other thread:

    Access Logs Show Only 1 Hour

    Thank you.

    Feel free to add additional questions or input to that thread. Asking the same question on multiple threads leads to disorganization and the cross-posting of solutions.

    Thank you.
