    Are the logs and stats calculated into the customer's alloted disk space? If so, how long do they stay, and can they be manually removed?

    You can make anything count towards their space. Just change the file ownership and it will go towards their space.

    I don't think logs are counted towards their space. But if you have a user that has big logs then just make the logfile owned by them so it counts towards their space.

    Er... I am a customer. Making the stat files count towards the customer's space won't solve the problem, it's only that the customers will have it instead.

    Ten days ago I opened an account with 50MB of webspace, and yesterday, CPanel told me that I've used up 46MB that space already. After doing some research in my directory, I discovered that Analog (one of CPanels bulit in statistic programs) has build up a &cache& file which is 34 MB big!

    The uneasy feeling I have is that CPanel in itself seems to be able to disrupt my entire site by producing large files on its own without me knowing about it. Almost like a self-destruction process...

    I have deleted the &cache& file now, but I'm afraid this is like cancer - if I find no long term cure, it will come again.

    I've also seen that Webalizer will produce appr. 2 MB of files each month - which is ok, as long as I know about it.

    Thinks I would like to know:
    - Is there anything else on board CPanel that can blow up like a multi-MB-balloon?
    - Is my panic totally unjustified because Cpanel is smart enough to use only those resources that are available? But then again, I tried to upload a couple of files yesterday, and my FTP client gave up on it. (Strange coincidence?)
    - Can I disable Analog, e.g. by eradicating as many of the associated files as I can?

    Many thanks for your advice!
