End users can benefit from wp2syslog:
- Log entries for core events help to keep track of the daily business, especially on multiuser blogs.
- Log entries for core events can raise awareness for threats and problems, for example abuse attempts.
- Log entries triggered by plugins allow the user to comprehend the functionality of the plugin.
Developers can benefit in two ways from wp2syslog:
- At each point of the code, a log entry can be triggered. No need to print to the browser, just let wp2syslog put it in the database, and you can have a look later.
- You can develop your plugins with support for wp2syslog. This will give your users the chance to better understand what your plugin is doing (see doc/specs.html).
This plugin is forked from first 0.2 version of http://www.ossec.net/wpsyslog2/
already forked from the wpsyslog plugin by Alex Guensche ( http://www.zirona.com/software/donate ).
The firts version of this plugin was developed during a project with the German “Menschen für Tierrechte” (Humans for Animal Rights).
It is an organisation of activists who advocate animal rights and fight against abuse of animals. They generously decided to donate
this work to the general public by letting Zirona put it under the GNU GPL and allowing us to promote and distribute it.
Please support the work of Humans for Animal Rights, e.g. by placing a link to Humans for Animal Rights and
spreading the word. Not (only) because of this plugin, but generally for a better treatment of the beings on this planet.
- Just copy wp2syslog folder to the wp-content/plugins/ folder
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
