Central Logging is just a single binary executable that serves an HTTPS server. It will automatically handle TLS/HTTPS for you using Let’s Encrypt. This makes setting up the service easy. Just copy the file to your server and execute.

System Requirements

We recommend at least 1GB of ram; however, it will depend on the size of your logs. 1GB of ram works well for 15GB of logs with 15 day retention.

Deploy to Server/VPS

  • SSH to your host machine
  • Download Central Logging for your OS and CPU arch.
  • For example if you have a Linux amd64 server: wget
  • unzip it unzip
  • Grant permission to bind to port 80/443 (we don’t want full admin priv.): sudo setcap CAP_NET_BIND_SERVICE=+eip centrallogging-linux-amd64
  • Run it ./centrallogging-linux-amd64
  • Navigate to and follow setup instructions
  • Make sure HTTPS/TLS is working
  • Ctrl+C to stop
  • Install as a permanent systemd service with sudo ./centrallogging-linux-amd64 -install so it starts on boot
  • sudo systemctl enable centrallogging
  • sudo systemctl start centrallogging
