CentOS 5 :: Configuring Syslog-ng 3.0.3 With 5.3

Oct 5, 2009

I installed syslog-ng-3.0.3-1.rhel5.i386.rpm and at first blush it appears to be working fine to /var/log/messages. However it doesn't seem to be doing any other ancillary logging as defined in syslog-ng.conf (I've had to mod /etc/init.d/syslog-ng to look in /etc). e.g.

destination d_auth { file("/var/log/secure"); };
filter f_filter3 { facility(authpriv); };
log { source(s_sys); filter(f_filter3); destination(d_auth); };

I'm using a syslog-ng.conf which has served me well in the past (v1.6.9 on fedora).

CentOS 5 Server :: How To Log Vsftpd To Syslog

Jan 11, 2009

I open "man vsftpd.conf", it says syslog_enable If enabled, then any log output which would have gone o /var/log/vsftpd.log goes to the system log instead. Logging is done under the FTPD facility. Default: NO So I add "syslog_enable=YES" to the /etc/vsftpd.conf, and add "ftpd.* /var/log/ftplog" into /etc/syslog.conf. But there is no log infomation in the ftplog file.

CentOS 5 :: Syslog Server For SOHO Infrastructure?

Aug 7, 2011

I have a dual-processor x86 box with CentOS 5 Linux 2.6.18-238.19.1.el5, mysql Ver 14.12 Distrib 5.0.77, and tons of storage space. I want to run a syslog solution on this box for a SOHO infrastructure. We've got routers, switches, Windows servers, other Linux boxes, etc. I've looked at syslog-ng, but it seems rather overkill, but I like the idea of storing logs in a MySql database. Is there anything I can yum install?

CentOS 5 :: What Does Rsyslog (using Yum) Install And How To Handle Conflicts With Syslog

I am thinking about installing rsyslog using yum, but I only want to try it out first and don't want to create conflicts and problems that will be hard to revert. When I ask yum on CentOS 5 about rsyslog, I get this (note much older version - it's too bad that even the latest STABLE rsyslog isn't in the repository):

CentOS 5 Networking :: Syslog-ing Messages From A Particular Host To A Particular Log File

Oct 12, 2009

I've just configured my Linksys RVS-4000 router to syslog messages to remote syslogd server (i.e. my CentOS5 machine). Redirecting messages was easy, but now I'm having difficulties to redirect those same messages received from Linksys to a separate log file. By default, all these messages are logged to /var/log/messages, and after browsing manual pages for syslog, syslog.conf, and syslogd, came to suspect that what I want isn't possible.

CentOS 5 :: Syslog-ng Remote Clients But No Local Logs?

May 13, 2010

I installed syslog-ng so I can receive remote logs. this is working however since I disabled syslog on my syslog-ng server I am not logging in /var/log/messages cron and some others.locally)I know this is because my syslog-ng.conf only references remote and not local.How can I edit the syslog-ng.conf file so that I can receive remote and local? I tried this however when adding in portions of the default config, I only receive local and not remote logs anymore. I am forwarding my config.

CentOS 5 Server :: Rotating Named Logs Via Syslog.conf?

Mar 1, 2010

OS CentOS 5.4 I have a DNS server that is logging all named and dns requests to the chrooted named directory. By default named logs to /var/log/messages but I want to isolate all the dns queries and requests to separate files. I know I can add entries to /etc/syslog.conf to "roll" the logs and logrotate should pick them up but fuzzy as to the syntax. I don't know what "tag" to use in the first fieild. for example

# Log anything (except mail) of level info or higher.
# Don't log private authentication messages!

Here is the logging section of my named.conf

# pwd
# /var/named/chroot/etc

CentOS 5 Server :: Configuring Email Aliases Per Domain?

Is there a way I can set up an email alias just for an individual domain?

e.g. I want to set up help@host2.com, but not to have help@host1.com or help@host3.com.

I can't see how to do this in the /etc/aliases file...

CentOS 5 Networking :: Configuring For Large Number Of Tcp Connections?

Jan 24, 2011

i've got a select based application that wants to support a large number of mostly idle connections. the code is java and works on windows, suse enterprise linux, mac os x. it does not work on centos 5.5 (32-bit, 2.6.18 kernel, 1G of memory).

i've read and followed the directions in various articles about tuning linux for large numbers of connections (including the C10K problem), and gotten the number of sockets up to 3200.

these didn't make any apparent difference:


on windows, i can get up to around 78,000.

on suse enterprise linux (a few years ago), i got up to 90,000. that's where i got bored and stopped.

on my mac laptop with os x (snow leopard), i got up to 10,500.

i have used ulimit -n 10240

my current goal is 10k sockets.

the test is that i'm opening one socket at a time until it fails. when it fails, many of the sockets which have already been opened also fail, in one giant cascade. sounds like a buffer / memory problem.

each group of 64 sockets gets a thread to manage select calls for them. thus i'm only using around 61 threads total when it fails.

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Configuring The Touchpad And Bluetooth-mouse?

Jun 30, 2011

I've installed CentOS 5.6 to my laptop, primarily to use some simulation programs. With much help of google I'm getting my hardware and software to work quite well, but I still have some troubles.My first problem is my Synaptics-Touchpad. It is extremely sensitive and I am not able to scroll. Is there any application which allows me to configure it properly? Before CentOS, I've tried openSUSE 11.4, where there was an application especially for configuring synaptics touchpad (dont't remember the name though). In general, the "feeling" of the touchpad was way much better under openSUSE, but I can't define that properly. I have a bluetooth mouse (Dicota Blue Light) conntected to my laptop, which is working fine except for the scroll wheel, which doesn't work at all. How can I activate it?

CentOS 5 :: Monitoring And Configuring AHCI On Board Hardware RAID?

Nov 26, 2009

I am using Centos 5.4 on an Intel DG451D Main Board. Two SATA drives in RAID1 mode via the main board's built in AHCI controller. It seems to work just fine but I would like to be able to monitor the state of my drives and controller, especially during a re-build and make configuration changes etc if possible, so new drives can be added etc from within the OS. Is there a way to do this within Centos or am I stuck with using just the BIOS configuration system? Apologies if this is a stupid question - I am pretty new to this and have spent several hours trying to find a solution to my question but to no avail.

CentOS 5 Server :: Configuring Alias Phpmyadmin In Virtual Host?

Nov 10, 2010

i have linux server application based on centos 5 that run httpd daemon from /usr/local/pf/conf/httpd.conf which is generated from the /usr/local/pf/conf/templates/httpd.conf.apache22 file

the problem is every time i run my linux server application i am not able to access phpmyadmin unless i stop my linux server application which is stop it httpd daemon then start "service httpd start"

i have been told by forum moderator to create an alias for my phpmyadmin in Virtual Host but it stil dont work, i am not able access my phpmyadmin site

this is what i have done to solve this problem

- open /usr/local/pf/conf/templates/httpd.conf.apache22 file then look for <VirtualHost *:%%admin_port%%>
- add Alias /phpmyadmin "/usr/share/phpmyadmin" (Failed)
- add Alias /phpmyadmin /usr/share/phpmyadmin (Failed)
- add Alias /phpmyadmin "/usr/share/phpmyadmin/" (Failed)


NB : my phpmyadmin is install on /usr/share/phpmyadmin with /etc/httpd/conf.d/phpmyadmin.conf as phpmyadmin configuration file

why i still cant open my phpmyadmin site ? or why i cant run phpmyadmin together with my linux server application because it use the same daemon (httpd daemon)

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Configuring Logitech MX Revolution But Missing A Library And/or Evdev

Jul 31, 2009

On a new install of CentOS 5.3 I am trying to make the Logitech MX Revolution mouse work (I did actually succeed in configuring it by BTNX on my previous machine, but can't make btnx work now...). I am following the instructions from [url] works. However, when installing the xmacro package it complains about a missing library: libstdc++.so.6(GLIBCXX_3.4.9)(64bit). The library is available in Fedora but not in CentOS. I guess installing the Fedora library is unwise...?

Does anyone know how to make xmacro work?

Also, in xorg.conf it seems (from other posts etc) using the evdev driver for the mouse would be advisable.

However, when I change from [driver "mouse"] to [driver "evdev"] X cannot start. In the xorg.conf logfile (/var/log/Xorg.0.log) it seems like the evdev driver is not compiled:

I don't really understand the error, but it seems to me, that the evdev driver is not compiled... The evdev driver should, though, be installed (through the package xorg-x11-drv-evdev-

If this is right, how, then do I compile the evdev driver?
