Issue

/var/log/apache2/access.log never being cleared. Was around 3gb

I have cleared this file manually, can i do this from xibo with an automated task?

Hello,

You can use “logrotate” packet to rotate xibo log

example from our installation

cat /etc/logrotate.d/xibo
/home/site-web/xibo/log/*.log {
su user group
daily
missingok
rotate 365
compress
notifempty
}

WARNING : if you change default log directory (like us), you have to edit apache2 conf as well
