Forum OpenACS Q&A: ns_logroll will not roll log

Posted by Malcolm Silberman on
since upgrading to AOL3.3.1+AD13 I have been getting this error...

[17/Oct/2001:00:00:00][308.2051][-sched-] Error: nslog: rename
(/home/aol32/log/dp4.log, /home/aol32/log/dp4.log.2001-10-17-00:00)
failed: 'Permission denied'

I have made sure is owned by nsadmin.nsadmin

I'd check ownership and permissions on the /home/aol32/log/ directory and the dp4.log file, as well. Can you su nsadmin and then create and delete files in that directory as nsadmin? The permissions issue will not be with loadable module (else it would not have even loaded when AOLserver started up!), but is almost certainly with the log file it is trying to rename, or the directory that the log file is located in.
