Trying to log to a central syslog server, either direct using Apache's ErrorLog to pipe to logger, or getting syslog to forward, but nothing is working and the errors are not making sense to me. I can get the Custom log to work, but not ErrorLog. Using Apache/2.4.7 on Ubuntu 14.04 with rsyslogd 7.4.4.
Config in my vhost (with and without space after logger options makes no difference):
LogLevel warn ErrorLog "|/usr/bin/tee -a /var/log/apache2/error.log | /usr/bin/logger -tapache_err -plocal1.error" CustomLog "|/usr/bin/logger -p local4.warning -t apache" combined
and then getting this error:
/usr/bin/tee: invalid option -- 't'
Also tried (with and without double quotes):
But then got:
(2)No such file or directory: AH00089: Couldn't start ErrorLog process 'syslog:local1'. AH00015: Unable to open logs
ErrorLog "| /usr/bin/tee -a /var/log/apache2/error.log | nc -u -j xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 514"
But then tee is still complaining:
/usr/bin/tee: invalid option -- 'u'
Why on earth is
tee picking up options after the second pipe and what can I do to stop that? I am a but stuck, Google isn't my friend, and any other advice is appreciated.
