I've a problem with hhvm, because it's writing errors to 3 different logfiles:

  • /var/log/hhvm/error.log
  • /var/log/syslog
  • /var/log/messages

I only want it to write the messages to the first logfile. I've set hhvm.log.use_syslog = 0, but this does not help.

How can I keep hhvm from writing to syslog and messages? (using debian linux)


Debian uses rsyslog by default, so check your /etc/rsyslog.conf. You'll likely see entries in there that set those destinations. You'll also need to look for hhvm as a source, and make sure that the source has only the destination that you want.
