Hard drive space
Authored by: moyashi on Aug 10, '01 03:41:38PM

Ok, so it's not that then. Thanks.

How about this then. I open access_log up with pico and it complains that file has long lines and there are now 65571 lines total in my log.

Sure, my question might be outrageous for those more experienced than I am and I probably should open files with a different type of editor that allows scrolling versus control-V or control-Y to page down or up. I should even get myself a book to study more about my system, this I all agree with. I'm not even really complaing that I'm missing some drive space. I just mentioned drive creep and how I can cut down on my log and save space. I should have also mentioned that I would like to reduce the "length" of my log. sorry.


So, let me re-ask my question. How can I cut down my log's "length"?


I prefer using pico since it's a little more unix than let's say textedit would be and therefore reminds me that I'm editing files that are part of the system.

To cut down on the space it takes, (which is completely minimal, therefore giving you a trivial amount of hard disk space) just delete the log.
