    Can anyone tell me wether its safe for me to delete host-bin.001 type files and what are they? I am also wondering if it is safe to delete a .err and .pid file?

    I have about 12gig of these files dating back 4 months.

    Thanks for your help

    Yes, you can delete those files, unless you're running a master/slave replication setup.

    Check your mysql variables SHOW VARIABLES for log_bin, make sure it's off. You can also disable that in /etc/my.cnf. It's not required for MySQL to run, any way.
