Re: [SQU] Disabling log filesIlker,

I am totally agree with you to keep the logs. Because of my last case (someone spoof our IP), I will try to find the culprit in my access.log. However, I also have one important thing to be kept in my mind. Control the logs size !

I even don't know how to "automatically" control that. Last time also got another problem. Our "GNOME" crashed our Linux because of our HDD size was so low after Squid run for 30-45 days. I did not control the logs.

Please give me comment and suggestion how to "auto" control the cache size. Many thanks for your help.

Best Regards,

  No..Some options in the squid.conf are deault. If you want to disable access_log, see FAQ:

  6.14. How can I disable Squid's log files?

    To disable access.log:

            cache_access_log /dev/null

    To disable store.log:

            cache_store_log none

    It is a bad idea to disable the cache.log because this file contains
    many important status and debugging messages. However, if you really
    want to, you can: To disable access.log:

            cache_log /dev/null

  Best regards,
