I recently had this issue on a new server installing AlmaLinux 8.5 minimal and then cPanel

I guess during OS install - AlmaLinux Minimal did not install rsyslog for some reason or not.

UPDATE 02/05/2022 3:21am:

Note: The rsyslog package does not come by default on AlmaLinux installations
so new installed AlmaLinux servers you need to install rsyslog

So I had installed CSF as always and then found this out because I set RESTRICT_SYSLOG = 3
(3 = Restrict syslog/rsyslog access to RESTRICT_SYSLOG_GROUP ** RECOMMENDED **)

Then I started getting email errors about every 10 mins. or so

Code:
EMAIL ERRORS I WAS GETTING

Time: Fri Feb 4 04:25:42 2022 -0600
Error: Failed to detect code [LlsNLK7sLm2bxuWS4WvQHdFT3OqCk] in SYSLOG_LOG [/var/log/messages]

SYSLOG may not be running correctly on server1.mydomain .tld
- So I did a little searching after trying to restart it

Code:
[[email protected] ~]# /scripts/restartsrv_rsyslog
warn [restartsrv_rsyslog] The system is unable to find systemd configuration for the 'rsyslog' service...
(XID g224zj) The “rsyslog” service is disabled.

- But it showed Service is Disabled...
So then I installed it and started it, by using terminal
Code:
execute these lines below.

begin the install:

# dnf install rsyslog

then select : y  when your prompted in terminal and click enter key.

then start syslog:

# systemctl start rsyslog

Finally restart :

# /scripts/restartsrv_rsyslog

DONE!

Here is the output of installing and starting rsyslog

Code:
[[email protected] ~]# dnf install rsyslog

Hello,

when new installing cpanel now,
will rsyslog be installed by defaut ?
or should we run yum install rsyslog to install it manually ?

thanks
