How to keep server out of logs?


there you may read some anonymous services like VPN service dont keep logs of their members activity.

So i want to ask how i can make my personal linux servers be without any logs of accessing IPs, hostnames.

I know there is "/var/log/lastlog", but are there any other files in default linux to be deleted (securelly)?

It isn't clear what you are asking. Describe your environment? Are you running linux? Do you have root access?

Is there a good reason you don't want this information? Most people will use it for tracking activity if fraud or hacking is suspected.

Much of this information may be forwarded to a remote server that just collects logs too, and all for good reason.

Can you elaborate?
