chris z Posted October 11, 2003 Report Share Posted October 11, 2003 looking to free up some space, i was fishing around in the /var/log folder. i have a HUGE (18meg) file called "messages" & one sorta huge (3.5meg) file called "wtmp". i turned off system logging a week ago, & that seems to be the last time the "messages" file was written to. the "wtmp" file is current as of today (10-11-03). was Googling for an answer, but found nothing definitive. so, before i get rid of them & regret that move, i seek wisdom here. is it safe to delete those files?
