rsyslog.conf Setup

Modify /etc/rsyslog.conf file and add the following at the end:

*.* @[ip address of remote server]:[port]

  • Port number is optional. ┬áDefault is 514.

httpd.conf Setup (Apache)

Modify /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file and add the following:

ErrorLog syslog:local1

CustomLog “| /usr/bin/logger -t httpd -p local1.info” [log format]

Now restart both Apache and rsyslog

service httpd restart

service rsyslog restart

Now your logs should be going both to the local machine and to the remote logging server.
