Is it true you should delete log files from time to time?

I've heard that if you don't delete various log files when they get to a certain point, that you will run out of disk space. Just a theory mind you - but that is what I've heard.

Well, it is a theory no more. We proved it right here today folks! No need to hire an over priced computer scientist to do your testing - we did it for you! No extra charge!

When that log file hit about 15meg, the board ran right out of disk space for messages and began ignoring new posts at about 3:54pm central US time! Yes siree, when that disk full error hit, you could have seen an error message for yourself if you wanted. We had several posters that can verify this theory for us, as they saw the test results (errors) for themselves! Living proof!

No I'm not kidding. I'm sure you've wondered about this disk full theory from time to time yourself. So now that you have the facts, what you choose to do with them is your business.

Now that is timely, accurate, informative information you can use to run a better site. WebmasterWorld, we look out for you! ;)


eg, humor:
a) Is often used by people to relieve tension or nervousness.
b) It can also be used to defuse embarrassment and to deflect attention from a problem.
(note: this was case B)
