About syslog() function

Due to security issue we are not allowing syslog() function in our
shared server environment.

Customer Getting Below Error :
Warning: syslog() has been disabled for security reasons in

Solution :

You can disable the syslog module using the MySQL command line, run the following
SELECT to look at the state of your data before the change. This will help you to
find the full name of the module too.

SELECT name,status FROM system WHERE type ='module';

Then to disable your syslog module, set the status to 0 for the module name
that you want to disable.

UPDATE system SET status='0' WHERE name='syslog';
