OCModShop has a new article about Linux maintenance, particularly how
to manage unweildy log files!

Title: How to Split Linux Log Files by Day or Month ( -at -) OCmodshop




Unless your admins took the extra care to automatically separate your
log files by date, then you may have noticed one huge-ass log file in
your web page's directory... especially if it isn't compressed.

In my case I had an 11.3GB log file sitting in my home directory, and
I really needed to split it up into smaller files.

There's a very easy way to do this with the Linux command line.

A news post on your site would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Alan McCloskey
