When you are in WHM and see a message informing you that RESTRICT_SYSLOG is disabled, what should you do?
0 = Allow those options listed above to be used and configured
1 = Disable all the options listed above and prevent them from being used
2 = Disable only alerts about this feature and do nothing else
3 = Restrict syslog/rsyslog access to RESTRICT_SYSLOG_GROUP ** RECOMMENDED **
Well, I recommend setting RESTRICT_SYSLOG to “1” so that your system log won’t be filled up with messages. By setting the option to “1” in WHM, that will make it easier to read through the system log and ensures that the system log does not use as much disk space as if you utilize too much disk space, you can prevent yourself from updating cPanel and also crash the websites (ie. WordPress) that needs to connect to the database.
* Makes server monitoring easier with less reports to read.
* Saves disk space for storage as less reports are generated.
* Limits cPanel update failures due to low storage space.
* Reduces the chances of sites using MySQL database from crashing.
