I installed syslog-ng on Ubuntu. I did this:

~$sudo service syslog-ng start

then I got in file /var/log/syslog the line:

syslog-ng[1150]: EOF control channel, closing connection;

I tried some solutions from the internet, for example modifying the configuration file /etc/syslog-ng/syslog-ng.conf:

source s_src {
    unix-dgram("/dev/log"); internal();

but nothing helps. Please, advice?


which version of syslog-ng are you using?

Can you try changing unix-dgram("/dev/log") to system() ?
