    Hi, I'm running Plesk 10.2 and every few days I get the following error message emailed to me:

    error: stat of /var/log/maillog failed: No such file or directory

    Can someone shed some light on this error as I've looked everywhere for an answer but nothing seems to work. Any help to get this newbie around this error is appreciated.

    Thank you,

    Mike

    Hi IgorG,

    Thank you for the reply. I will try this change and let you know if I get the email again. Is there a way to check if everything is working ok after running these commends? I should have mentioned that I'm running Plesk on CentOS 5.

    Thank you,

    Mike

    It is just commands for creation missing file with correct permissions. You shouldn't receive mentioned emails with errors when this file will be created.

    Hi IgorG,

    I ran the commands yesterday and no email today. So it looks like it's working. But I will keep an eye on it in case I do get that email again.

    Thank you,

    Mike
