I have installed version 7.3.0. with sql 2012
The site is enabled with 3 languages.
Only HTML modules, a custom skin and ckeditor are installed.

The database is 15Mb
The logfile is 65Mb

When I make a backup of the database, then I can trucate te logfile with 5 Mb.
However, the logfile increase every day more Mb than I can remove with the truncate.
So this logfile is growing larger and larger.

My hosting server do allow to have a log file of 100Mb.
When It is larger, then 100 Mb, then I have to pay additional space.

Is the big logfile caused by DNN or by sql 2012?
Can this be caused by my hosting server?
What can I do to prevent this logfile larger then 100Mb?
When will this growing of the log file stops?
I have already deleted my previous 730 instance and have build the website again.

Regards, Ton

please check the recovery mode of your Website. if it is Full, you may consider switching to simple.
Besides you should backup your Website and database nightly with log truncate.
