add timestamps to the history format on cPanel installation

cPanelMary shared this idea 8 years ago
Completed

When troubleshooting a webserver, it can be very helpful to have timestamps in the bash history. It would be very helpful if the cPanel installer would set up timestamps in /etc/bashrc. It would also be nice to have timestamps in history for jail shell users.

After discussion with mary about the utility of this, this is planned for 11.48.


Here is what we're changing it to:

  1. -bash-4.1# history

    1 2014-09-18 11:48:43 sh latest

    2 2014-09-18 11:48:43 vim /etc/cpupdate.conf

    3 2014-09-18 11:48:43 vim /etc/cpsources.conf

    4 2014-09-18 11:48:43 vim /etc/cpsources.conf

    5 2014-09-18 11:48:43 sh latest

    6 2014-09-18 11:48:43 exit

    7 2014-09-18 11:48:43 vim /etc/cpupdate.conf

    8 2014-09-18 11:48:43 vim /etc/cpsources.conf

    9 2014-09-18 11:48:43 wget -N http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/latest

    10 2014-09-18 11:48:43 yum install screen

    11 2014-09-18 11:48:43 screen -S install

    12 2014-09-18 11:48:43 exit
