I would like to delete the MySQL ib_logfile but do not know where the files are located on my machine.

I am running the latest version of Ubuntu.

Log files are usually located at /var/log/. MySQL server log files are usually named like mysql.SOMETHING.

For ib_logfiles, also check /var/lib/mysql.
