    var/log/httpd/sea_urchin file?


    Hi ,
    Does anyone know about the sea_urchin log? what does it do? how can I shut it off. there seems to have an automatic process somewhere because every time I deleted the var/log/httpd/sea_urchin log file, it will regenerate the log file again on sunday.
    Thank you so much for your help!

    There's a javascript called "urchin", a tracking module, that keeps a log file here:
    Code:
    /var/log/httpd/urchin
    . That's the closest thing that comes to mind.

    Thank you,
    I did find an application name urchin, and I remove and uninstall the urchin service from the server, however, the sea_urchin log still reappear every monday.
    This is the step I have followed to remove the urchin service:
    webhostingresourcekit.com/219.html
    maybe I miss something during the process?
    There is one thing though, As following the guide, I didnt find any entry of urchin in the rc.local, there is also no urchin file in the rc.d/init.d directory.
    Does that mean the urchin still running? but I use service urchin status and it come up with urchin: unrecognized service.

    Executing this command
    Code:
    ps -A |grep urchin
    ought to tell you if urchin is running or not.

    the sea_urchin log still reappear every monday.
    Then I would look in /etc/crontab or /etc/cron.weekly since it being executed at regular intervals.
