This question already has an answer here:
Working with Centos 7
In the rsyslog.conf file there are some rules that place logs in directories that start with a -/ (Dash slash) before stating which directory to place the logs, while others have the usual / followed by the directory.
I know the slash before the directory says to start from the root directory, but what does the dash do?
Does the dash mean something specific as I cannot find the meaning behind it anywhere.
Thank you! TDR
