    Question How to flush log files in /var

    Hi there,

    How can I flush log files located in /var partition and don't break anything?. What I have is a Web server running Red Hat 5 and /var is getting too big (53% of 500 MB). Thanks a lot in advance.

    Hi manojsmatani,

    OK, thanks for the advice. The logrotate tool seems quite interesting, I'll check out if it suits my needs. Thanks again

    I use Ubuntu clone.See if a program called bleachbit is in your repository.It does a good job for me.Other ways to do it but bleachbit is easy.

    Hi synjyn,

    OK, I heard a lot about this program some time ago but I think I'll give it a try. I hope it performs well on servers 'cause personally I use Ubuntu clones too at work and don't mind testing bleachbit on them.
    Thanks a lot for the advice
