I am on an embedded linux system. As usual
/var/log/ is the directory when all the logs are stored. I have a directory called
/safepath which is created during image creation and it is on persistent memory. It means that whatever I place under
/safepath persists across reboot sessions.
I want the logs in
/var/log/ to not be lost on every reboot and wish to make it persistent through the reboots. So I thought to mount
/var/log/ on to
/persists by doing a
mount --bind /var/log /safepath which I read from this interesting discussion here
But doing this, still causes me to loose the data in
/var/log/. Is this correct? How can make
/var/log/ to persist accross reboot sessions?
