Hi,

I am facing a serious issue. The mysql logs are generated too frequently and too big files. I only run a small site on the server and the logs consume 38GB space in only a few hours(maybe even minutes). Due to this mysql stops working and site crashes. I have attached logs generated within a few minutes. These are logs just for a few minutes. Please have a look and thanks for the help.

I have the same issue on my website on digitalocean.  how did you resolve this issue?

I just delete the log files, but I cannot resolve this issue completely.

Here's how to fix it.

Edit the file /etc/mysql/my.cnf

Find a line that reads "log_bin" and remove or comment it as follows:

#log_bin = /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin.log

You also need to remove or comment following lines:

#expire_logs_days = 10

#max_binlog_size = 100M

Close and save the file. Finally, restart mysql server:

# service mysql restart

Did you made some changes to MariaDB (MySQL) configuration?

Did you read the logs to see what is causing so many records?

No I did not make any changes.
