    It says that Logwatch is already installed on most cPanel servers, but it seems not to be the case for my server.

    /usr/share/logwatch/default.conf/logwatch.conf is empty or is a new file, and using locate logwatch.conf shows no result.

    How can I verify if Logwatch is installed? :eek:

    I have Centos 5.

    Hello,

    I don't have logwatch installed onto my machine. What says logwatch is already installed on most cPanel servers?

    As for installing it, you'll need to remove perl* in /etc/yum.conf file exclude line, then you would run:

    Code:
    yum install logwatch
    Afterward, please re-add perl* to the /etc/yum.conf file.

    Thanks!

    Thank you!

    cPanel documentation page Additional Security Software says that Logwatch is already installed on most cPanel & WHM servers.

    logwatch may be installed as part of the operating system (before cPanel is even installed) on many cPanel servers, but cPanel itself does not install it, and cPanel does not use it.
