What is the "/root/install.log.syslog" in linux?
Posted on 2007-04-04
A user recently brought my attention to the file "/root/install.log.syslog" in one of the linux boxes that I have partial responsibility. This file contains the creation of numerous users and groups such as rpm, mailnull, apache, webalizer, and ntp to name a few. My question is this: Should I be worried about all of these users that seem to have been installed on the system during its initial configuration over a year ago?
