    Can someone explain me how i can rotate the access_log in /var/log/httpd/access_log ? It's realy huge (about 5 gig a day) and i realy don't need it !

    Thanks!

    create /etc/logrotate.d/httpd with the following. If will likely fail on that 5 gig log though. If you dont need it, I would stop apache, delete it, and restart apache.

    Thanks, wil first try a new httpd... i think your 2nd solution will not work because it will recreate access_log automatic.

    That's what it is supposed to do. Apache will not run without the access_log. It is defined in your httpd.conf.

    You can always empty it with an hourly cron with somehting like

    0 * * * * /bin/echo "" > /path/to/access_log

    (may need to use \"\" cant remember)


    seems strange for that log to be getting so large daily if its already set on rotation
