If apache appears to crash with this error [notice] child pid x exit signal File size limit exceeded (25).


This error is usually means that a log file is too large for the system (generally, 2 GB or more).You can run the following script to fix the issue.


If any extremely large or active websites that hosted on your server reaches this limit often, you can disable logging for that website. If you disable logging, the server’s performance will increase and you can avoid this error.

I'm Mohammed Noufal, working as Server Admin for the last 10 years.  In my day-to-day life, l had to face different problems related to Web-hosting. On my website Errorlogz.com, you can find solutions for different Web-hosting-related problems. Sometimes, I spent hours searching/googling to find a solution. This inspired me to start a website that gives solutions to different Webhosting problems. This website includes basic Linux and windows commands, and different control panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, Webmin & so on. You can find solutions and or suggestions for different Web-hosting related problems from here. Hence I would like to say Errorlogz is your server protector.  I will be glad if Logdetect can help any one of the Server admins to find a solution to his problem.
