Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Well that or, when working with the Apache\logs\access.log file, restrict what it logs and does not log? (aka not log my own activities).
I just looked at it for the first time, and its 6.10 MB.
99% of my servers use is by myself, so I really only care about that other 1% when i have other people travel to it.
