I configured dansguardian to use syslog, but I still see files in /var/log/dansguardian getting populated.

I saw there was a bug for Fedora 12, I am using Fedora 20.

Is this a known issue or is it a configuration issue?

I have syslog = on in my configuration file.


According to this page, the setting in the DansGuardian config file dansguardrian.conf should be logsyslog, not syslog. So try commenting out the syslog = on line and add the following line instead:

logsyslog = on

It should log to user.info, so you'll need to edit your syslog.conf file to redirect that facility and level to a file or a remote server.
