Presently all my proftpd logging goes to /var/log/messages but
it is clogging that file because I have an ftp login every couple of
minutes. I want to redirect proftpd logging. I tried putting
in my /etc/syslog.conf
but syslogd complains;
syslogd: unknown facility name "proftpd"
looking at the man page for proftpd is says;
Each successful and failed ftp(1) session is logged using syslog with a
facility of LOG_FTP. Note: LOG_FTP messages are not displayed by sys-
logd(8) by default, and may have to be enabled in syslogd(8)'s configu-
So I tried;
still no go.
I am unfamiliar with logging. Can someone help me along here?
