Im trying to figure out how to setup FreeBSD 5.3 to log
php events to its own log file via syslog.
In /etc/syslog.conf, I added ->
# php logs
*.*                                             /var/log/php.log

I created a empty file for the log ->
gladiator# touch /var/log/php.log
gladiator# ls -l /var/log/php*
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  0 Jan 20 16:37 /var/log/php.log

Then I HUPped syslogd ->
gladiator# ps aux | grep syslogd
root     277  0.0  0.2  1316  908  ??  Is    4:14PM   0:00.01
/usr/sbin/syslogd -s
gladiator# kill -HUP 277

In my php script, Im using ->
syslog(LOG_INFO, $message);

But nothing is being logged to the file.
Am I doing something wrong on the FreeBSD side of things??
