    Hello

    Today I noticed I was using all my diskspace resources on my VPS. But I didn't change a thing. While I was checking the size of all folders on my server I noticed there was a log file: /var/log/messages that was almost 4GB big.

    Now I just removed it and everything is working normal, but I also saw some other log files with a size of 10MB. Can I just remove them every once and a while or does that happen automaticly?


    Thanks in advance

    You can set the log rotation for each domain to limit the file size of a log before Plesk creates a new log or you can set it do create a new log file once a day. You can also specify how many logs to keep in rotation. Check this for each domain in "Log Files" "Log Rotation".
