    Default SpamAssassin help...

    Can anyone tell me how to fix the following two errors?

    Feb 15 17:43:13 grog spamd[594]: Still running as root: user not
    specified with -u, not found, or set to root. Fall back to nobody.
    Feb 15 17:43:13 grog spamd[594]: processing message
    <20050215234319.24178.qmailweb50710.mail.yahoo.co m> for root:65534.
    Feb 15 17:43:13 grog spamd[594]: Cannot open bayes databases
    /root/.spamassassin/bayes_* R/W: tie failed: Permission denied
    Feb 15 17:43:15 grog last message repeated 2 times

    I'm getting all sorts of bayes database errors. Is there something I
    didn't update when I installed the system? Also, I tried a -u nobody
    to spamd, but it just seemed to hang.

    TIA

    Default Re: SpamAssassin help...

    You can't run spamassassin as root (see your
    configuration).
    Well, it fall back to nobody user, because you don't
    specify anything.
    The problem is that the working directory is in root
    dir (/root)
    Well, spamassassin running in nobody try to write in
    root directory ! It's forbidden
    Edit you conf and find nobody
    replace it by a spamc user, you have created before
    .... (don't put root, it's dangerous)

    ok see if it's work
    see ya
