As a workaround, yes I know that I can write a cron job on the server to routinely delete the log. But why do that if I can actually solve the root problem? And that is where someone on this forum will hopefully come in to help me.
PtA says he is a software developer, he should be able to knock this out easily.
Anastasios, is there a reason you don't post the overhead this place costs you and what would some support would cost over and above what you get?
In the past, when I helped admin a board, we simply had a countdown of how much the overhead was and when the board would stop if the goal wasn't hit. We ran at a surplus all the time which was put into stuff like server upgrades and the like.
I occasionally take a look at the running donations area and I think folks around here could be more generous. If PtA is unwilling or unable to solve the problem and no one else will, maybe having a little more money would make this easier for you.
Thanks for putting up with all this stuff, maybe some of the burden over the long run for you should be addressed now by getting someone here commit to doing the job or getting the persons who use this place to pay someone else to do it for you.
