services.log
« on: October 29, 2007, 06:59:33 PM »

Hi,

Well i have this problem that i have been trying to fix for hours, it is when i try and run anope i get this error:
Warning: unable to open log file services.log: Permission denied
I have given the services.log read and write permissions to all groups, i can't possibly think of whats the problem.

Thanks for your time :)

the problem is you are missing something. "Permission denied" is a very literal term.

I'm having the same problem.  The above response isn't exactly helpful  :(

Make sure you have write permissions to the whole directory.

I've been mucking around with chmod with just that in mind.

Finally went with:
Code: [Select]
sudo chmod -R +wrx services/

Still no luck.

I also tried touching /services/bin/services.log and then chmod'ing that - still no progress.

Have you used root at any point in the installation process?
That usually causes problems and from what I've seen, no amount of chmod and chown will solve it.

I do believe that was the problem; thanks!  Removed everything, made everything writable from the start, ran ./Config, make, and make install again without root.  Problem solved.
