You have upgraded from Debian 7 to Debian 8 and you are usign syslog-ng.
You will be in a little bit in trouble with syslog-ng
You can check this with systemctl status syslog-ng.service
syslog-ng.service start request repeated too quickly, refusing to start
syslog-ng service is not starting.
Check your local config file search after ” unix-stream(“/dev/log”);”
People with custom syslog-ng configurations will most likely face upgrade problems due to the unix socket type mismatch between systemd and syslog-ng old configuration file:
- systemd creates /dev/log as
- syslog-ng < 3.2.5 expected /dev/log to be
If you use ‘unix-stream (“/dev/log”)’ in one of your log messages sources, you will need to manually change it to ‘unix-dgram (“/dev/log”)’.
