ELOG Electronic Web Logbook

ELOG Electronic Web Logbook is an electronic logbook with a Web interface. It can be used to maintain personal or shared logbooks, with the ability to add attachments to logbook pages. Logbook entries can be categorized with user-defined classes, and queried using filters on these classes. Automatic email notifications can be generated on new entries based on the classes. The ELOG server is a small stand-alone C program, which runs under Linux and Windows. No other packages are required. The logbooks are saved in plain ASCII files for easy and fast access.

            Release Notes: This is an important security update. Strong encryption is now used for passwords. Anyone who cares about security is advised to update to this version. Existing password files for Windows users and Linux users that are not using HAVE_CRYPT are automatically converted. Those installations which used HAVE_CRYPT in the past under Linux have to ask their users to re-enter their password (via the "Forgot password" link) after upgrading to this version.

            This is a rare beauty
            And extremely usefull. I've just installed it on Linux and Windows and am now proceeding to the Solaris and FreeBSD boxes. Highly recommended for any sysadm for your system logbooks and todo-lists. And we all need those :-)

            Perfect solution for a datacenter
            Me and some other admins at my datacenter were looking for a nice online tool to keep activity logs. Often time due to missed/bad communication we re-invented the wheel...but now with the help of this tool we won't make such mistakes. Also this helps us keep track of updates done to boxes...just a great tool over all. Thank you very much for such an awesome product.

            web board
            by trimming it down a bit it makes a great web based message board. i'd like to see all aspects of the generated html more configurable, but this is very usable as it is.

            Amazingly useful tool
            This is probably the most useful tool I have run across FreshMeat in regards to business use.
            Stefan is an incredibly responsive developer. I suggest this to anyone in need of a change tracking system.
            The command line client has made this incredibly useful to our inhouse developers in logging errors in their automation code.
