for various reasons, we have a "manual backup routine" in our team: In regular intervals (daily if we can make it and think of it), we manually copy apps to a backup_directory and run them there. There is a code that we have developed that will remove all working_data, which shrinks the apps to about 20% of their size.
The only issue is: Because the scripts are run, there are also .log files created, one per app.
=> Is there any possibility, from within the apps (in the code) that I can delete the .log files?
That is not what I wanted to do in this case - I was just looking for a way to delete the logfile created by my own "backup_code" - on a one-off basis, without turning it off - logging is necessary.
However - is there any kind of documentation available, either here or as a QlikView_book, on where the log_files are stored and which logfiles there and where to look if something goes wrong?
I have no training as admin - and chances are slim that I'm going to get any - but it does look like I will have to take on the tasks of QlikView_admin in addition to being developer and designer.
I have the book "QlikView server and publisher" by packtpub. That might be quite useful - I haven't read it in detail yet as I don't have Server access - but now we have relocated all the log_files, maybe I can at least get access to those.
I don't think this will work. The reason is that the log is written last after the script has finished running. You could build an supporting task to delete all the log files after all the jobs are finished. If you are trying to delete them when the task is running, I don't understand why you don't turn the logging off.
