Mini report

A small report is prepared that contains just the important information

  • PHP changes
  • JS changes
  • File changes
  • Vulnerability scanner results

You can view this report by logging into your access server via SSH and switch user to root,

su -l root

Then execute the following command, pressing the space bar to paginate through the results.

log_check.sh | more

You can also send the results direct by email by using your email address as arguments supplied to the script,

log_check.sh me@example.com my-colleague@example.com

You can add more email recipients by adding them to the end of the line, separated by a space.

Daily email notification

If you want the mini report to be sent to you each morning as a report, then you can use the built-in notifier to send you an email.

Log into your access server via SSH and switch user to root,

su -l root

Then edit the crontab to add another task at 9am daily,

0 9 * * * /microcloud/scripts_ro/log_check.sh me@example.com my-colleague@example.com
