How does ISPConfig synch logs from /var/log/ispconfig/httpd/* ?

    Hi all,

    I recently migrated from old hardware to new, moving ISPConfig all my vhosts etc. - I followed the guides I could find dotted here and there, and things are mostly working. However, I have encountered a strange issue: Error and access logs are not being updated in /var/www/*/log

    So what's happening is that if I monitor a logfile, say in /var/log/ispconfig/httpd/ errors show up fine. However, they are not being "synched" to the error log located at /var/www/

    I have another server which was set up from scratch with the same version of ISPConfig 3 where all this works, but I cannot for the life of me figure out by which mechanism this "synching" is happening. I thought there might be symlinking involved, there is not, and then I thought about cron jobs or something like that - but that doesn't quite make sense either.

    So, how does this function on a working system? And how can I debug what is happening on my "migrated" installation?

    Thanks!! :O)

    Dont miss to copy over the bind mount lines from /etc/fstab to the new server and run mount -a afterwards.
