I have just installed UnrealIRCd on an Arch Linux computer using sudo, and I have made sure none of the initial errors are triggered by editing the unrealircd.conf file accordingly, however I do get this:
Code: Select all
config error: /etc/unrealircd/unrealircd.conf:270: Couldn't open logfile (/var/log/unrealircd/ircd.log) for writing: Permission denied
My first solution was to run with sudo, but I realised that there is a security failsafe to stop Unreal running as root. My second I dea was to change the filepath for the logfile in the .conf file, but this doesn't seem to be possible.
I have gotten the program running on Windows before and I didn't get this error, and I don't really know much about UnrealIRCD so I have no idea how to fix it. If anyone could help me out with this that would be gratly appreciated!
