Accident deleted log file in server
HI All

I accidentally delete log files which located in


The system seems like not generate again for the file and after i deleted the log file, the disk space doesn't increase.

Please help...

Disk space doesn't increase because the file is still open, its not really deleted ( 'unlinked' ) until the prog releases it.

service cups restart
or whatever the equiv is on your distro.
(Please add distro name/version to your profile for future ref)
