|Clearing apache log files|
| 12:23 am on Dec 14, 2002 (gmt 0)|
I am running Apache as a test server on Win98se.
I run it in the console mode.
Just deleting the access and error files doesn't work, they get replaced with a file of the same size with a bunch of junk in it!
The manual shows this code for rotating the logs:
mv access_log access_log.old
mv error_log error_log.old
gzip access_log.old error_log.old
But I can't find out where to put this code.
Anyone have a clue on this?

This is a series of commands that you would use on a *nix/Apache installation. For example, "mv" moves a file. These could all be put into a script file and run as a batch as needed.
You could probably "translate" these into similar Windoze commands and build a batch file.

I was trying to clear the logs without shuting down Apache first!
I now hang my head in shame :(
