-bin files in /var/lib/mysql-500 - MySQL

Hi! In my /var/lib/mysql-500 directory (that's where the database directories are), I've got files like this: -rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql 70396545 Aug 12 18:40 hetzner-bin.000030 -rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql 17952010 Aug 16 22:34 hetzner-bin.000031 -rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql 261778556 Sep 23 21:47 hetzner-bin.000032 Those files are rather large. Do I need all those files? What do I need them for in the first place? Can I delete old files? Thanks, Alexander Skwar -- After all, all he did was string together a lot of old, well-known quotations. -- H.L. Mencken, on Shakespeare...

    Default -bin files in /var/lib/mysql-500

    Hi!

    In my /var/lib/mysql-500 directory (that's where the database directories
    are), I've got files like this:

    -rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql 70396545 Aug 12 18:40 hetzner-bin.000030
    -rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql 17952010 Aug 16 22:34 hetzner-bin.000031
    -rw-rw---- 1 mysql mysql 261778556 Sep 23 21:47 hetzner-bin.000032

    Those files are rather large.

    Do I need all those files? What do I need them for in the first
    place? Can I delete old files?

    Thanks,

    Alexander Skwar
