Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 451695
Docs suggest log-output=/var/log/qpidd.log but this isn't writeable by user qpidd
Last modified: 2013-10-23 19:08:14 EDT
The Messaging Installation Guide, Chapter 3, section 2 suggests examples for
/etc/qpidd.conf including log-output=/var/log/qpidd.log. This log file doesn't
exist, and user qpidd won't have the privileges to create it. We should either
create it upon installation so user qpidd can write to it or change our docs.
I'd recommend the former. Also want to make sure that log rollover does the
right thing with respect to file ownership if we go in that direction.
If this is a docs change instead of a behavior change (i.e. direct people to use
/tmp or something), reassign to Lana.
As Gordon pointed out to me, the default behavior for logging is to use syslog,
and that puts the messages in /var/log/messages. We should just remove the
log-output= line from the example qpidd.conf file so as to not confuse people.
If they want to explore the additional qpidd options, they can read the man page.
Updated doc available for review here:
This bug is no longer an issue in that review copy.
