    Can logwatch files be deleted?

    My /var partition is getting full and most of the problem seems to be with the files in /var/cache/logwatch/ using up all the space. Can those be deleted?

    I see no reason why not.. delete the old files - check out find mtime option

    If you have root access then yes. It shouldn't effect anything.

    Sure, you can delete those files.

    Thanks everyone. I deleted them and the server didn't blow up or anything. /var is back down to a reasonable size. It kept getting critically full, but now I know what to do if that happens again.
