Rotating MySQL server log files

Posted 03-09-2012 at 06:09 PM by anomie

This may seem like an inconsequential, overly specific topic, but I'm posting here because - following a couple 'net searches - I observed a dearth of helpful information on MySQL server log file rotation. All the resources I found on the topic essentially said:
