Error Deletion of Logs

Can someone suggest on this script :

let's say the logs files are available for Jan 07, Dec 06, Nov 06, Oct 06

the script should identify the latest months logs, i.e Jan 07

it should then delete anything older than 2 months, which will be logs for Nov 06 & Oct 06.

you could make use of the datecalc available in the forum - to do all sorts of operations with date.

I have a question to you Smilie

Why do you want to duplicate the post?

Data Thnaks, I did search for that ...

datecalc is not there in our Production environment...

" Is it possible to see if there are files/dirs where there are difference of 2 months and delete the older once "

Thanks again

A simple method with find would be:
find dirname -mtime +60 -print
will give you all files and directories modified more than 60 days ago.
