    SOLVED: Spamassassin and spammng

    I wonder if any one else has come accross this problem.

    When I try to save the Spam filter configuration (spam assassin settings) - I get a nasty message:

    In the plesk error log I have:

    This problem is starting to be a pain in the jacks.

    This is a clean install of Plesk 7.5.4 running Debian 3.1

    The .deb file for psa-spamassassin is:

    All the files seem to be linked properly in /usr/opt/psa/admin/(s)bin/

    I have tried uninstalling spamassassin psa-spamassassin and spamc

    Nothing works.

    Does anybody recognise the above error message to be fixable?

    Many thanks in advance.

    OK - it looks like nobody knew the answer to this. I am not one to sit on my backside so I managed to track down the problem.

    The permissions were not set correctly on the file:


    For some reason it had lost its suexec status.

    ---x--x--- 1 root psaadm 13976 2005-08-24 07:26 wrapper

    "chmod 4110 wrapper" sorted that out. now its:

    ---s--x--- 1 root psaadm 13976 2005-08-24 07:26 /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/wrapper

    I am new to Plesk (not to linux) so I never even knew about this file (much less touched it) so I cant think how it lost its perms.

    Anyway - I hope this informtion helps some other poor soul in the future.

    um, where is the Plesk Error Log?? I have no such log on my box. Wish I did, so I can fix this error myself.
