How to make syslog files readable by default for phplogcon on debian?
1. First add a new group by using this command, we call the group logadmin in this sample.
2. Now we add the www-data user to the new created logadmin group!
usermod -a -G logadmin www-data
Verify the success by using this command:
3. Now it is time to edit the /etc/logrotate.conf configuration file. Search for the default "create" command, and change it to the following:
create 640 root logadmin
The next time logrotate will run, the logfiles will become readable to the webserver by default.
