Windows SharePoint Services HTTP log file, configuration, deletion and "prevention"?
Posted on 2010-08-24
A server with Windows Server 2003 SP2 and Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007.
Under "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\Logs\[some ID]\" is for each (since a long time) day created one subfolder per day, having a name of the format "[YYYY-MM-DD]".
In each of the "[YYYY-MM-DD]" subfolder, is found one 00.log file.
The first line of a 00.log file says "Windows SharePoint Services HTTP log file".
In IIS exists a number of Web Sites, but none for which I see logging into the above mentioned subfolders.
Hence my questions:
1. What is creating the "[YYYY-MM-DD]" subfolders and the 00.log file?
2. Where is '1' configured?
3. Can I delete older files (and/or what is the impact)?
4. Can I prevent '1'?
