The Adiscon Debian Repository has been setup to provide support for the latest stable rsyslog version on Debian 7 (Wheezy) including support for additional third party packages.
This page describes the simple steps you need to do in order to use the latest and greatest rsyslog version on your Debian machine. If you prefer a Video showing the steps, scroll down to the bottom of this page.
Please note that these packages are NOT official Debian packages. Most importantly, do NOT use the Debian bug tracking system if you have any issue with them. Use rsyslog debian package project bug tracker instead.

Procedure explained in a Video
We have explained the procedure in a Google Hangout on Air. Note that this bases on a slightly older version of the installation instructions where a full system update was done. This works well, but if for a reason you do not want to keep your system current, follow the instructions above. In any case, the video clearly shows you what to do, even if you slightly modify the procedure.
