#8449 closed defect (fixed)

syslog-ng init script, PID file test

Reported by: eschoeller@… Owned by: jow
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: packages Version: Backfire 10.03.1 RC3

Description (last modified by jow)

The syslog-ng script's reload() function sends a HUP signal to the PID specified in /var/run/, however syslog-ng is never started with '-p /var/run/' so the reload function fails, because it has no PID file to cat.

The start() function would just need to be modified like such:

[ -x /usr/sbin/syslog-ng ] && /usr/sbin/syslog-ng -p /var/run/

instead of:

[ -x /usr/sbin/syslog-ng ] && /usr/sbin/syslog-ng

Then this will work:

kill -HUP `cat /var/run/` &>/dev/null
