Can you remove old log files in server\logs folder

Jump to solution

On our production ePO server, I noticed under server\logs that we have a lot of log files that date back to 2009. Can you remove these older log files as this folder is over 816MB in size?

 

There are files like common-daemons, localhost-access, jakarta_service, orion.logx, etc

With services running, you can delete all except the ones that are being written to today.  So you don't have to wait for services to stop.

Yes, you can remove them all with services off and all but current with services running.  That is all up to your desired log retention.

Thanks. I will remove some of the very old ones the next time that I can stop the services.
