    Hi

    does anyone knows why this is happening when i restart syslog?

    Starting system logger: FAILED

    my /var/messages and /var/secure are empty


    It started to happen when i reboot after aborting a nmap compiling?

    everything is fine except for this

    Thanks in advance

    Claudio

    All right!

    Well i followed this thread http://forums.cpanel.net/showthread.php?t=13834&page=1&pp=15

    and close in /etc/services all ports leaving just that ones from the first page of this above related thread and also used:

    /etc/rc.d/int.d/./xinetd restart

    then today i realize my syslog /var/log/messages as well as /var/log/secure were blank

    i spended some hours trying to figure out what happened and then i edited again /etc/service

    and :

    syslog 514/udp

    /etc/rc.d/init.d/./xinetd restart
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/./syslog restart

    and it worked so i decide to post this here i hope someone enjoy as much as i did

    regards

    claudio :)
