    I am really new to Cpanel (installed succesfully 2 days ago).
    I am still confused about the apache raw log files for each client.

    1) raw log files for each client are automatically deleted at the end of each month ?

    2) if I set 100 MB web space for an account , space needed from raw log files will be included in the available web space of the client (100 MB? ) or not ?.


    Since log files may reach great value of web space, I need to know it .

    Thank you .

    ok , thanks . I am asking it because my old host , didn't count the raw log files in the available disk space.

    So , if an account has 500 MB of web space and for example 10 GB of available traffic , he will go out of space very soon , since with 10 GB of traffic log files will go easily over 500 MB .

    In this case is very important to give possibility to the client to clean/delete the raw log files .

    2 new feature suggestion

    1) possibility for the client to clean/delete raw log files on his account to free web space .

    2) possibility for the isp (via WHM) and for the client (via CP)
    to track/know the following data

    web space used total =&& ?
    web space used for raw log files =&& ?
    web space used for Statistic files =&& ?
    web space used for mysql =&& ?
    web space used for email =&& ?
    web space used for data (contained in /hom/user/) =&& ?


    What do you think ?

    The raw logs don't take up the users disk space, but the stats (webalizer/analog) do since they are stored in the /home/user directory. I've started storing my users logs in a backup drive since the combined amount for all clients were getting so huge it was taking up alot of space in the /usr partition.

    Anyway, I have a bug in about the logs.. yet Nick hasn't updated it and it's been in there for months now (since Feb 18).
    http://web.cpanel.net/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=351
    I'd really like to see that happen, give the users a little more control over their rawlog and the ability to completely download it (super large logs in the MB can take hours to download on dialup, which is bad).

    If you haven't already, enter those two feature suggestions into the bug/enhancement report area.. Nick won't implement suggested features posted on the forums since he probably won't have the time to read each post and might overlook them... it's mainly for accurate reporting.

    Is it possible somehow that server admin has control to delete old stats data and keep just like max past 4 months.

    is this possible to do from WHM ?
