[03:14:38PM] <Global> os_info: ERROR: can not open the database file!


I keep getting these errors :( Anyone help?

I searched the forums here and only got a 40% relevancy rating on this topic (http://forum.anope.org/index.php?topic=296.0)

How are the permissions on the services directory? At risk of sounding captain obvious-like, Seems os_info is trying to create, read or write a file (most likely os_info.db) and having problems.

wow....How could I overlook that :(


At first, I tried chmodding it via my private ftp on my server which I use to update my files (because I don't know how to transfer over ssh :P)  but got permission denied so I simply ssh'd in and did "sudo chmod 777 os_info.db" :D

Thanks for the help :D

you should NEVER need to use sudo! If you have installed as root, delete it and re-install as a normal user.
