Usually you would use 'logrotate' to compress and archive old logs.

BTW it seems you've been flying below the radar for a long time: if you read the LQ Rules you will see that posting duplicate threads is not allowed. Please don't do that again.

That doesn't matter at all.

No problem. You know now. There just aren't valid reasons for crossposting threads but there are other ways to get exposure like moving your thread to a more appropriate forum. You can ask a moderator to move the thread for you by using the [Report] button on the first post in your thread.
