Re: [SLUG] innd can not find history file


Terry,

Have you checked that the history files that you have are in the
directory that inn expects?  The directory is configured with `pathdb'
in inn.conf:

    [johnc@wombat ~]$ grep pathdb /etc/news/inn.conf 
    pathdb:                 /var/lib/news
    [johnc@wombat ~]$ ls -l /var/lib/news/
    total 2001
    -rw-rw-r--    1 news     news         1476 Mar 14 18:38 active
    -rw-rw-r--    1 news     news         1514 May 28  2001 active.old
    -rw-rw-r--    1 news     news         1052 May 27  2001 active.times
