Do you mean the ~/.bash_history file? Or the /var/log/pacct process accounting file?

There are environment variables you can set for this. HISTFILESIZE is the maximum number of files to store in the history file (the default on bash is 500). HISTSIZE is the maximum number of commands to remember in the command history during a session (the default here is 500 also).

Have a look at man bash and search for these as well as for .bash_profile and .bashrc for more info.

That's right - you need to enable process accounting in your kernel and as root execute the following:
Code:
touch /var/log/pacct
chown root:root /var/log/pacct
chmod 0644 /var/log/pacct
if [ -x /sbin/accton ]
then 
  /sbin/accton /var/log/pacct 
  echo "Process accounting turned on." 
fi
