     99It is technically possible, and suggested to use the same logfiles for all 
     100programs running on given server. 
     101 
     102That is - you can setup archival to log to "archive.log" and backup to log to 
     103"backup.log", but you can make them both log to "omnipitr.log" - it will not 
     104break anything, and makes it simpler to manage log files. 
     105 
     106Same thing applies to state directories - these can be the same between various 
     107programs from I<OmniPITR> package. 
     108 
     109When creating any files I<OmniPITR> obeys ulimit, but doesn't enforce any 
     110additional restrictions. So, if you'd like it to create files that are readable 
     111only to owner, simply run it like this: 
     112 
     113    umask 0077; omnipitr-something ....
