Logwatch is a Perl-based log management tool for analyzing, summarizing, and reporting on a server’s log files. It is most often used to send a short digest of server’s log activity to a system administrator.

What are log files? Logs are application-generated files useful for tracking down and understanding what has happened in the past.

Pre-Flight Check
  • These instructions are intended specifically for installing the Logwatch on Fedora 20.
  • I’ll be working from a betakit.net Web Self Managed Fedora 20 server, and I’ll be logged in as root.

Step 1: Install Logwatch

As a matter of best practice we’ll update our packages:

yum -y update

Then let’s install Logwatch and any required packages:

yum -y install logwatch

Step 2: Configuration File Locations

Local Configuration Options can be found in:

/etc/logwatch/conf/logwatch.conf

Default Configuration Options can be found in:

/usr/share/logwatch/default.conf/logwatch.conf

It is best practice to leave the Default Configuration as is, and edit the Local Configuration option, which is under /etc as listed above.
