Freepbx.log too big

Hello,

An old freepbx installation of mine has a 1.7Gbytes freepbx.log file.
Can I just delete it and freepbx will create a new one or I need to create it again?

If you are talking about the asterisk log files, these are kept permanently open, so removing the file from the directory won’t delete the underlying file, which will continue to grow. It needs to be closed by a restart of asterisk or something like the CLI “logger rotate” command.
