I'm currently working on a PHP project and I've come across the syslog() function. I've read the documentation but I'm still a bit confused about how it works and what it's used for.
I understand that it is used for logging messages to the system logger, but I'm not quite sure how to use it properly. I would appreciate it if someone could provide me with a clear example of how syslog() can be implemented in PHP.
Additionally, if anyone could explain the benefits or use cases of using syslog() instead of other logging methods in PHP, that would be really helpful.
Thank you in advance for your assistance!
