Deleting old squid logs
I removed the squid package a while ago but noticed that the log files are still there under /var/squid/logs/
Can I safely delete the entire file manually or is there a command to empty it? The squid access.log is about 1GB so I'm trying to clear some space. Thanks!
I don't see why you couldn't delete it manually ::)
BTW, this is one of the issue with Squid as a package with pfSense: it doesn't rely on automatic log rotation and clean-up, as far as I understand. This means that you cloud end-up with full partition. (To be checked twice but this was my basic understanding when I looked at this some time ago)
Okay, I'm just going to delete the access.log and see what happens. I wasn't sure if deleting that log and then reinstalling the package later would cause some sort of error.
No, you will not get any error because of missing logs when installing this package again. Don't worry ;)
