Running ubuntu 8.04
I wanted to separate the cron logs from the auth logs, so in /etc/syslog.conf I uncommented the line "cron.* /var/log/cron.log".
I also wanted to cleanse the auth logs, so I deleted all of them.
I then restarted and tried to login via ssh, but there were no auth logs- a new auth.log wasn't created. The cron jobs were now logged to cron.log though.
I tried creating an auth.log and restarting but that didn't work, I think it was because I had to create it with sudo, so it was owned by "root" instead of "adm", like syslog.
How do I get my auth.log back?
