But not too different. The user must still have write access.
Otherwise, how would the shell write to it? If the shell can
write to it, so can the user. Anyway, what if the user has
more than one instance running? .bash_history only has the
history of one instance. Or tcsh? Or any other shell for that matter?
you could use a special partition that you only store those 'bash logs'
and set it to just allow appends. Files can't be deleted or edited.
Fill up the partition:
$ dd if=/dev/zero bs=1M count=1048576 >>/path/to/bash_history
(Increase count if the partition is greater than 1024G).
