Coinfiguring a Sylog Server on Linux

Simple stuff, just no good resource out there:

1). Modify the line in /etc/syslog.conf from this:
*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none /var/log/messages

To this
*.info;mail.none;authpriv.none;cron.none;local0.none /var/log/messages

2). Add the following two lines to the bottom of /etc/syslog.conf, the file “specialfilename” is the name of the new log:
# Firebox logs
local0.* /var/log/specialfilename

3). Modify /etc/syconfig/syslog so the”SYSLOGD_OPTIONS” look like this:

4). Restart the syslog server:
[root@yourserver etc]# /etc/init.d/syslog restart
