So I am trying desperately to doing some tidying on one of my servers (it is running critically short on disk space, and I'm methodically going through places where there may be too much room taken up by stuff I don't need. An obvious place to look is
/var/log/mysql/ have a series of files like this (the numeric suffix changing):
102524 -rw-rw---- 1 mysql adm 104874719 Nov 26 16:50 mariadb-bin.005273
Unfortunately logrotate has worked flawlessly, so they all predate my set of error.log files, so I have nothing to check them against. Two questions:
1: What are they?
2: Can I delete them safely?
