i am trying to get the forwarder to work with apache logs from the CLI

i issue the command
"./splunk input add monitor /var/log/apache2/"
and get this message
"Parameters must be in the form '-parameter value'"

You have provided the incorrect command. Try removing 'input' so it reads:

splunk add monitor /var/log/apache2/

As per the docs - Use the CLI

This should fix it for you 🙂
