    You might check to be sure error_log is being rotated:
    WHM »Service Configuration »cPanel Log Rotation Configuration

    What's the path to the log? Is it in the public_html path? It could be an application making the error_log.

    Hello :)

    Please browse to:

    "WHM >> Server Configuration >> Tweak Settings"

    There's an optioned titled "Log rotation size threshold" under the "Stats and Logs" tab. Is this configured to the default entry of 300MB? If so, it suggests the cPanel log rotation functionality is not working as expected. Please open a support ticket using the link in my signature if this is the case so we can take a closer look and determine why it's not working. You can post the ticket number here so we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.
