    httpd failed

    I noticed my kayako help desk was down and when I tried to restart apache I get the below error. Does anyone know what the below error means and how to rectify the problem?

    Thank you


    root@ns1 [/var/log]# /etc/init.d/httpd start
    /etc/init.d/httpd: line 192: 1074 File size limit exceeded(core dumped) $HTTPD -DSSL
    /etc/init.d/httpd start: httpd could not be started

    looks like one of your log files is over 2gb.

    i had a problem with httpd not starting and stuff last week, if this is your dedicated server try rebooting it

    Tried rebooting but didnt do anything. Cant get to any secure pages on the site. Dont know how to search for log files over 2gb's and dont know how to prevent it next time. This server only has 3 lightly used websites and site studio on it. Maybe something to do with site studio, I dont know. Thank you

    tail -f the error_log might say more.
