I went into the log folder of my lighttpd server and I found several files:

access.log access.log.4.gz error.log error.log.2.gz access.log.1 deluxeorganics

I was wondering if the server is creating log.1 log.2 files (and compressing them) to store the log history in separate files.



This looks to me like your log files are being rotated and compressed by logrotate.
