Install Procedure for logwatch

Requirements

To install logwatch you will need the following:
  • a installed and supported operating system (e.g. CentOS 7.x)
  • root-access
  • a fast internet connection

Preliminary Note

logwatch default setting with CentOS 6 was to send the report per mail as default. This seems to be changed with CentOS 7.

Install

Install logwatch:

yum install logwatch

Configure

override default output to stdout by

vim /etc/logwatch/conf/logwatch.conf

# Local configuration options go here (defaults are in /usr/share/logwatch/default.conf/logwatch.conf)
Output = mail
