spamassassin won't start

    I'm running Plesk 7.5.4 and can't get spamassassin to start. This is what happens, it looks like it's starting ok, but it really isn't.

    Code:
    # /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/spamd --start
    Server has been successfully started.
    # /usr/local/psa/admin/sbin/spamd --status
    is stopped
    0
    
    This is what I have installed:
    Code:
    #rpm -qa|grep spamassassin
    spamassassin-3.0.3-1.rhfc2.art
    psa-spamassassin-7.5.4-fc2.build75050824.12
    
    any help would be appreciated, I'm not sure what to do, I've tried uninstalling spamassassin and reinstalling from within plesk and from yum, but always the same result.

    Thanks.

    I have a feeling that PSA does not support spamassassin version 3 and above yet.

    Still won't work even with v2.68

    I uninstalled spamassassin 3 and psa-spamassassin and reinstalled it from the Plesk "updater". Still not working. Current packages are:
    Code:
    #rpm -qa|grep spam
    spamassassin-2.63-8
    psa-spamassassin-7.5.4-fc2.build75050824.12
    
    I did have to manually re-enable spamassassin for each mailbox on the server. It's kind of strange, you can't do it for individual mailboxes, you have to do it as a group operation on all mailboxes, one domain at a time.

    Anyway, spamd is running now and enabled, but not filtering!!!
    Code:
    # service spamassassin status
    spamd (pid 2075) is running...
    
    psa-spamassassin (how is this different from spamd??) isn't running:
    Code:
    # service psa-spamassassin status
    spammng: Pidfile exists but process (pid 2571) is not running.
    is stopped
    
    When trying to start this process, it says "OK" like it started, but subsequent "status" queries show the same error about the Pidfile existing, but the process not running.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction?
    Your help is appreciated.

    I seem to remember another thread where someone downgraded back to 2.6x and had to replace the SA config files (or something) since the removal of 3.x did not undo those and therefore reinstalling 2.6x did not re-write them since they already existed. And due to changes in the 3.x files they are not compatible with 2.6x

    I don' t have the time to do the searching, but it was recent, within the last 1-2 weeks, somewhere in the 7.5 forums.

    Will try

    Thanks, I never throught the search on the term 'downgrade'. I think I found the thread, I'll give that a try in the next couple days and see if I can make it work.

    I use the term 'downgrade' the post in question did not. Which thread did you find?

    I think this is the link to the one I was thinking of:

    http://forum.sw-soft.com/showthread.php?threadid=24697&highlight=spamassassin

    (took some searching on my part to find it again, not being able to include words less than 3 characters long, nor non-alpha chars is a bummer)

    Thanks

    Well, I tried several possible solutions from various posts and nothing seemed to work. As it turns out, my root partition was out of drive space!!! Deleting one big file and rebooting made everything work again. I'm surprised there were no other signs from other applications.

    Thanks so much, jamesyeeoc for your time and efforts on this forum.
