I see hundreds of mysql-bin.00xxxxxxx files in /var/lib/mysql directory. What are these files?

These files are created when you fail to turn log-bin off for MySQL (needed if you allow off-site MySQL servers). SSH to the server and edit /etc/my.cnf file, and add this directive:

# LOG-BIN

If you do not allow other servers to access MySQL to this server, you can safely delete all of these files.
