Make sure to install the correct version for your Graylog cluster:

@jochen just more one question, if i’m using a Virtual Machine with ubuntu as my enviroment, but this VM is running in a windows, and graylog is installed in my windows, i need install sidecar on my windows? correct?

That totally depends on what you want to achieve and the logs of which system you want to collect.

Also, you don’t need the Graylog Collector Sidecar at all, if don’t want to use it.

i just want collect apache errors too

I don’t see what that has to do with Linux or Windows.

You have to collect the Apache httpd logs on the system where they’re written.
