    Default [SOLVED] /var/log/zimbra.log - NOT LOGGING ANYMORE

    Hi All,


    I made a bit of a mistake, I emptied out the /var/log/zimbra.log file, as I was working on resolving some issues, however Zimbra is now no longer logging to this file.

    command i ran: > /var/log/zimbra.log

    I have stopped and started Zimbra using the zmcontrol command...


    How bad of a mistake was this? How Can I reset the logging?

    How does this affect Message Tracking/Tracing?

    This is the OSS version of Zimbra...


    Thanks in Advance....

    When you do an HTOP/TOP on the server does it show that the logging process is running?

    Try restarting your syslog daemon. Log files under /var/log are normally controlled by that service.

    Restarting Syslog worked... Zimbra is logging again...

    Thank you for your help...
