Hi my usr dir is 88% full.

Just wondering if there are old logs I can delete which are taking up space. Also whats the path to these?

Thanks

Try moving logs to another directory.

1. create a usr directory in the home directory
2. change directory to the apache directory
3. stop apache running
4. move the log files to the new location
5. create the symlink
6. restart apache.

mkdir /home/usr/
cd /usr/local/apache/
/etc/rc.d/in*/httpd stop
mv domlogs /home/usr/
ln -s /home/usr/domlogs/ domlogs
/etc/rc.d/in*/httpd start

Thanks, but usr is now 87% use so there must be other logs filling up that partition.

Look in your /usr/local/apache directory and see if you have core files. When compiling Apache it always creates several and they are several hundred meg each.

try:

cd /usr/local/apache/logs

ls -Sahl |more

That will list the logs in that directory, in size order.

IMO it's better to make sure error_log is in your logrotate.d/apache or similar file, where it will be rotated regularly.
