Custom Log Files DISAPPEAR after reboot


I am running some maintanance scripts on my Turris Omnia Router (Turris OS 5.2.0) which use their own log file I created in /var/log/custom/script.log

After reboot they disappear and I`ve to add them again manually.

Whats going on? What will I have to do to make them persistant?



This is because /var is actually mapped to /tmp, which is stored in RAM, and because of that, it is erased once you do reboot or power off.

You can verify this by using, for example, ls -la in the root dictionary to find this:

lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root             3 Apr 13 04:53 var -> tmp/

Thanks man!

I created my log file on /srv (SSD) and set a symlink via cron on reboot. Works fine.
