Hi,

My production server is on the linux machine. I am trying to debug and find the slow running queries. But first I want to delete the content of the /var/log/slow-queries.log file.

Can anyone tell me how to do this?

Thanks

Hi,

Its easy to do this. You can use the following command to delete the content of the mysql log file:

cat /dev/null > /var/log/slow-queries.log

Thanks
