Hello, i need some help with logrotate. i have installed it since i setup my server but seems its not working or i might not configured it properly. now my log folder is nearly 2.5 gb and mail folder is 1.5 gb.
i want to know if i want to set limit of the logfile to 100mb where i need to put size 100M? in /etc/logrotate.d/ or /etc/logrotate.conf
also if i want to overwrite same file instead of creating new after size reached the limit what should i do?
thanks in advance.
