Log file deletion/rotation problems

    The log file rotation facility is not working on my Plesk interface. The access_log file is now 11.5Gb and still growing, which is quickly eating up spare resources on my web server.

    Furthermore, I cannot delete the file as the tick box besides it is greyed out. How can I quickly delete this stats files and reclaim all this disk space? Please help.

    1) make sure that Statistics is presented in the list of Crontab job:
    # crontab -l | grep statistics

    2) Crontab should be running:
    # /etc/init.d/cron status

    3) You may check Contab log files to find get exact reason why Log rotation is not working.
    # less /var/log/cron
