Hey Jose Manuel, Can you post your nxlog config?
Have you tried to test your config?
[-h] print help
[-f] run in foreground, otherwise try to start the nxlog service
[-c conffile] specify an alternate config file
[-i] install service available to service manager
[-u] uninstall service
[-s] stop running nxlog service
[-v] verify configuration file syntax
the file /var/log/nxlog/nxlog.log make an error to read the file /var/log/boot.log and I made chmod 777 /var/log/boot.log and I am receiving data but now i am going to try receive the file that I want… With centos7 I am still lock.
Not sure how you set up permissions and since were dealing with /var/log/boot.log the user for nxlog can be added to the user/Group who owns /var/log/boot.log. Its not the best but better then “Open World Wide” on your boot.log.
