Database log file is huge

Recommended Posts

I am building a user interface PHP website which uses a MSSQL database to store stuff. When I was using Access as my interface, the Access files where only a couple MB, but now the log file has grown to 8Gb! I dont know why, I haven't uploaded 8GB or anything near that at all....

Well, You must have done something ... Remember, in full recovery model, Your logfile(s) will get filled with all Your INSERT, UPDATE & DELETE statements.

To make Your logfile smaller, You can do some things ...

 

1: If You dont ever wanna use Your logfile, set the database to Simple Recovery Model.

 

2: Setup a backup rutine of Your log file, as this will "truncate" Your log.
