Talk:Log Files

Thanks. I am looking for something I can send end users to as well. Some of the most common support questions I get asked, concerns missing e-mails. Any entry describing how to search the qmail log (through the web admin interface). Other stuff such as where to find details of who is accessing what websites (squid) is just not obvious to end users. Even I get confused sometimes with which log file is what.

I'm not sure the best format for each log file entry. I guess the information we need for each is:

  • Its base name
  • Its archive name format (old files)
  • What generates it
  • What you would typically look for in it

Thanks, Cactus, for adding the bit running the perl command without having to create a file first. I simply couldn't work out what those options needed were. -- Jason
