You could start by showing us the configuration file, no? We aren't psychic. Or you can just uninstall the rpm, ensure the configuration file is deleted and reinstall.

hi,this is the configuration file like i said i didn't modify anything

i followed the instruction of this tutorial;
http://www.docstoc.com/docs/28601285/Install-and-setup-Syslog-ng--PHP-Syslog-ng-Syslog-Server-IP,where they mentionned that i need just copy the "syslog-ng.conf.REDHAT" localized in "syslog-ng-3.2.4/contrib" to replace the file config created at the time of installation,i can't see where is the problem maybe in the script of starting syslog-ng the "init.d.REDHAT" !!!tx to reply me!!!and sorry for my english i'm french

You are using an old configuration file for syslog-ng 3.2.4? In the link you posted they are speaking about the 2.x series. One thing I notice, replace:
Code:
long_hostnames (off);
with
Code:
chain_hostnames (off);

One additonal thing: when I upgraded syslog-ng on an openSUSE system from 2.x to 3.x and compiled it on my own (as I needed some of the new features) it was also necessary to make changes to AppArmor and allow syslog-ng to write at certain places.

I never used SELinux on my own. You can first try to turn of AppArmor in case you use it. On openSUSE it’s:
Code:
# rcapparmor stop
Then try to start syslog-ng. If it’s working then, we can look into it. After the test you can start AppArmor again of course.
