  3. [ubuntu] Re: What did I do to my rsyslog config to stop mail logging?

    The first command grep produces some interesting output... it looks like there's binary in there.

  4. [ubuntu] Re: What did I do to my rsyslog config to stop mail logging?

    I do have backups (original file). Mail logging isn't critical to me, and with the current config I can't figure out what actually is wrong. The ufw and postfix configuration files are default.

    Logging Script Information

    I have various scripts that are basically wrappers to add header information so it makes it easier to parse the output when I redirect the output to a file.

    [ubuntu] Re: Rsync Stalling on a specific file

    Thanks for the suggestion for the --exclude-from, makes a lot more sense than listing them all individually.
