Oracle and apache

By idemcot ·
Hi everyone

I have a serious problem with my hard drive because of an apache file within my oracle database software. Here is the name of the file:
c:\oracle\or92\APACHE\APACHE\logs\error_log. Indeed, that file started growing up from nowhere and ate every single byte on the hard disk. The size of that single file is 35 GB. I tried to delete that file and I got this error message:
CAN NOT DELETE ERROR_LOG: IT IS BEING USED BY ONOTHER PERSON OR PROGRAM. CLOSE ANY PROGRAMS THAT MIGHT BE USING THE FILE AND TRY AGAIN.
I'm pretty sure that none of the programs on my compter is open or in use.
Anybody have an idea how to delete that file or a solution for this kind of situation.
My computer is useless with that file. Even when I delete some other files to gain space, the hard drive is still full.
I'll really appreciate your help to resolve this problem. Thank you.

tomcat?

by stjani In reply to Oracle and apache

Hello,
seems pretty big for an error log. It's probably trying to tell you something, but if you want to move it or even delete it my guess is that you have a service like 'tomcat' running which is holding on. Stopping that might free the logfile. If not than you could try stopping the oracle services. Just pay attention to what you stop so you can start it up again without restarting. Hope this points you in the right direction.
regards
