I have a web server on a VPS (Rackspace Cloud Server) running Debian Lenny. I need a system admin to do some general maintenance on the server. Specifically, I need:
1. Free up disk space by deleting old log files
2. Utilize logrotate to prevent disk space from getting eaten up by log files in the future
3. Do any other general maintenance that will free up disk space and help the server run better

The work will be done on a LIVE web server - so you have to know what you are doing and not mess anything up.

If the above goes well, I will re-hire the admin to upgrade my LIVE web server from Debian Lenny to Debian Squeeze, upgrading to the latest LAMP components and security measures, including phpMyAdmin, antivirus, etc.

Please only respond if you have specific experience doing this type of work. I will need to hire this person again from time to time as more server maintenance is needed in the future.
