copy custom rsyslog filter configurations for Unraid
#!/bin/bash
# copy custom rsyslog filter configurations
# latest version: https://gist.github.com/ljm42/f6d7d8f22d2965909f69c03df53529f6
#
# setup:
# 1. create the /boot/config/custom/rsyslog.d/ folder on your flash drive
# 2. place this script in that folder, name it rsyslog_copy
# 3. add this line to the top of your go script (before starting emhttp):
# bash /boot/config/custom/rsyslog.d/rsyslog_copy
#
# to test new rsyslog filters:
# * add or edit a .conf file in /boot/config/custom/rsyslog.d/
# * then at the shell type:
# bash /boot/config/custom/rsyslog.d/rsyslog_copy
# * this will copy the .conf file and restart rsyslogd if it is running
# * then review your local syslogs at /mnt/user/system/ (or wherever you have configured them to go)
#
# note: the syntax for the filters is complex and beyond the scope of this script
# see: https://www.rsyslog.com/doc/v8-stable/configuration/filters.html
#
