    Due to the excessive logging, cPanel more or less kills my server on a frequent basis. How can I stop ALL log file on the server. Its using up 60+ GB at the moment, and I have to go through folders and take out one at the time.

    Also, another question is, what is:

    -rw-r----- 1 mailnull mail 1822889554 Nov 30 10:55 exim_mainlog

    Seems to be yet another log file. Can I delete it?

    And two more here:

    -rw------- 1 root root 21276579 Nov 30 10:50 maillog
    -rw------- 1 root root 48763798 Nov 30 10:50 messages

    And one more:

    -rw------- 1 root root 28531123 Nov 30 10:51 secure

    All this is in /var/log on the server. Are these logs as well?
