Well you don't really have to use 1.5.* to get your entries into a database.
Check out this link


Nate gives a lot of useful info as well as links to useful utilities, one of
which is a program that enters log info into your database.

Subject: [syslog-ng]1.5.21 no logger entries?

Dear list members,

 I use SuSE 8.1. I installed syslog-ng 1.4.16 and it worked. Testing
entries with the logger command appeared in the syslog.

I want to get the data into a MYSQL database and I found in the list,
that I have to switch to 1.5 ("templates are supported by the 1.5.x
branch only, which is development version by its name, but seems to be
quite stable.")

Using 1.5.21 compiles fine (libol0.3.3 installed) but no entries are
stored in the /var/log/* using the same logger command.

Making a grep over all files and for all subdirs shows no entries.

Any suggestions thanks in advance?
