How to disable MariaDB binary log safely and permanently


MariaDB binary log is taking almost 10GB now on my VPS. I removed logs and added a setting to my.cnf to disable the binary log, however, after EE update my.cnf got reset and now my HDD is full.
How to disable logs permanently?


Comment out all the lines on


and only the log_bin, log_bin_index, expire_logs_days, max_binlog_size from



It looks like it worked - however, won’t ee.cnf be overwritten when doing ee cli update?


I am not quite sure because I also changed it recently and there aren’t any updates since I changed it. Maybe it will ask whether to overwrite with the new version or keep the installed version but that’s just my guess. I haven’t found any other option to disable it. So, if the settings are overwritten, the only option we have is to repeat the process.
