I followed the wrong guide posted here I guess. I went into the domlogs dir... killed httpd... made a link to /home2/domlogs and restarted apache... was hoping this would stop my /usr partition from filling up, but the /usr partition still grows so the guide posted here was wrong.

What I would like to do is remove the link and follow one of the other guides posted here.

Please help.. I just don't know the command to kill the link.

Here is what I did...

mkdir /home2/domlogs
stop httpd
ln -s /usr/local/apache/domlogs /home2/domlogs
start httpd

How do I undo it and what would be the proper way to accomplish this?

You were so close.

mkdir /home2/domlogs
stop httpd
cd /usr/local/apache/domlogs
tar -cvf domlogs.tar *
mv domlogs.tar /home2/domlogs
cd ..;rm -R domlogs
ln -s /home2/domlogs /usr/local/apache/domlogs
cd /usr/local/apache/domlogs
tar -xvof domlogs.tar
start httpd

I attempted to follow the below, but am left with one issue. Please help.

mkdir /home2/domlogs DONE
stop httpd DONE
cd /usr/local/apache/domlogs DONE
tar -cvf domlogs.tar * DONE
mv domlogs.tar /home2/domlogs DONE

cd ..;rm -R domlogs
Do I want to delete the files within domlogs or just remove the entire directory? It prompts me for this info.

ln -s /home2/domlogs /usr/local/apache/domlogs
cd /usr/local/apache/domlogs
tar -xvof domlogs.tar
start httpd

Once you've done the tar and moved it, verify that it does exist in the new directory. When you do the rm -R reply yes or use rm -Rf

I have tested this thoroughly as I also have my domlogs somewhere else.

Also your bad, locate the the bad link you should see it in /home2/domlogs/ All you have to do is rm it.
