rsyslog error 2207

Syntax error in configuration file

Something is syntactically wrong with the mentioned config file, so that further interpretation is impossible. The error most often actually is on the quoted line, or at least very close in front of it. A syntax error can be caused by invalid spelling of RainerScript commands, e.g. "stopp" instead of the correct "stop".

Sample Data:
rsyslogd: version 7.1.11, config validation run (level 3), master config /etc/rsyslog.conf
