Server Log Rotation Problem - deleting access_log

    Hey everyone,
    I host on a server running the latest version of Plesk 7.5.x, and a small issue that cropped up recently is that log files aren't being rotated properly. Right now, one of the access_log files is taking up a fairly large amount of space, and I'd like to get rid of it.

    What are the common locations for an access_log file, and how can I overwrite it with a blank access_log file? Right now, since my total storage space has been maxed out at 100%, I'm getting database errors on a vbulletin forum.

    Not sure if this helps, but here is the folder structure to my HTML files: home/httpd/vhosts/kirupa.com/httpdocs/

    I do have root access.

    EDIT: I do apologize for posting in the wrong forum. I have deleted my earlier thread from the Windows forum, for the server runs Linux.

    I was able to fix it by deleting the access_log file.

    Here is what I did after I logged in as root (in case anyone is interested :)):

    cd /var/log/httpd/
    rm access_log

    Kirupa :p

    kirupa: in my opinion, I think that was not the best solution, although you did nothing wrong. Plesk should do it itself and there is appropriate settings for doing that.
