> MySQL, and the log files in question don't look like ordinary log files, so
> I'm reluctant to mess with them without guidance. I'm running Ubuntu 6.10
> with the MythTV 0.20 and MySQL packages that came with it. The log files
> appear in /var/log/mysql and are called mysql-bin.000001 and up (to
> mysql-bin.000047 at the moment). In total, the /var/log/mysql directory is
> now 270MB in size (on a 1GB partition), and I don't see any rules in the
> Ubuntu log file rotation configuration to touch these files, although there
> are rules to handle other (so far much smaller) MySQL log files.
> So, any advice on this? (A pointer to a Web page would be fine, provided it
> assumes little or no knowledge of MySQL.) Can these files be rotated by
> logrotate, or is there some better way to handle it?
> Thanks for any pointers.
This may be what you are seeing...
