    Hi,

    I am getting the following email from a new server I got

    /etc/cron.daily/logrotate:

    stat of /var/log/exim_paniclog failed: No such file or directory
    stat of /var/log/exim_rejectlog failed: No such file or directory

    How do I fix this problem ?

    Regards,
    Garry

    I would
    # touch /var/log/exim_paniclog
    # touch /var/log/exim_rejectlog
    and give them the same permission as the other Exim log files.

    &touch& is the command to create the file:

    In a shell session write this:

    # man touch

    if you want more info.

    Hi,

    Oh right so I go into ssh and type

    # touch /var/log/exim_paniclog
    # touch /var/log/exim_rejectlog

    and chmod it to the same as exim_mainlog which is -rw-r-----
    the is has root root so do I need to chown both files to root:root

    Does anyone know what the chmod number is for -rw-r-----

    Regards,
    Garry

    Is it just me, or are there threads about this issue all over the place? I could swear I just replied to one... ;)

    4 read
    2 write
    1 execute

    -rw-r----- would be 640 then.

    640 is correct for the reject log. Just ensure it is owned by root:root
