Nova Maintenance

I started using Nova for my site since 2010. In 2011 when I shifted it to my own server ; It was about 100 Mb in size give or take. Now it has ballooned to over 240 Mb right now.

How do I prune the site? Can the logs folder content be safely deleted?

Re: Nova Maintenance

Create a back up folder and try it. That way, if something goes horrifically wrong...

I'd advice against destroying the folder and the files inside, but the content inside the files should for the majority be fair game. (I'm not certain if Nova will re-create the logs if not found, it should but...)

Re: Nova Maintenance

You can safely delete the log files in application/logs. You might wanna keep that last 14 or 15 of them just so that you have a copy of any errors that have happened in the last 2 weeks though.
