installing from source:

Code:
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/nxlog-ce/nxlog-ce-2.3.1027.tar.gz
tar zxvf nxlog-ce-2.3.1027.tar.gz
cd nxlog-ce-2.3.1027/
aptitude install libpcre3-dev libapr1-dev libssl-dev libexpat-dev make
./configure
make
make install
mkdir -p /usr/local/var/run/nxlog/
mkdir /var/log/nxlog/
mkdir -p /usr/local/var/spool/nxlog/
mkdir /usr/local/etc/nxlog
useradd nxlog
cp /root/nxlog-ce-2.3.1027/packaging/debian/nxlog.init /etc/init.d/nxlog
sed -i 's/\/usr\/bin\/nxlog/\/usr\/local\/bin\/nxlog/g' /etc/init.d/nxlog
vim /usr/local/etc/nxlog/nxlog.conf
bash -x /etc/init.d/nxlog start
But the easiest way is to use ubuntt, and just use the package management system. Is that an option for you?

Help with WHAT? You don't tell us what version of CentOS, don't tell us what software (we have to get nxlog from the subject line), tell us where you got the program, or what error(s)/problem(s) you're having. So what can we tell you??

Why don't you start by reading the instructions?
http://nxlog.org/nxlog-docs/en/nxlog...ce-manual.html

Pay particular attention to the "Installation" section. Download it here:
