Subject:Logging aborted_connects to error log instead of gen. log
View as plain text  
It is noted in
http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/4.1/en/communication-errors.html:

The server increments the |Aborted_connects| status variable when the
following things happen:

    *

      A client doesn't have privileges to connect to a database.

    *

      A client uses an incorrect password.

    *

      ....

      If these kinds of things happen, it might indicate that someone is
      trying to break into your server!

I see that this event is written to the general log. Is there a way to
log such an event to the error log?
