Default Privoxy log access rights

Hi All,

Could you please tell me what is the access rights on the provoxy log file on
your machine?

For some reason mine look like this:

# ls -la /var/log/ | grep priv
drwxr-x--- 2 51 privoxy 408 Sep 21 07:40 privoxy

Regards,
Mick

That's the /var/log/privoxy directory, and the permissions are the same
as mine, user-writeable and group-readable. Do ls -l /var/log/privoxy to
see the logfile.

Why did you use grep here, that's what caused the confusion?

If you cannot fix it, feature it.

Thank you both, I'll change ownership to privoxyrivoxy. Probably the result
of some corruption? I used grep to just list privoxy instead of the whole
of /var/log. I could as well have used ls -la /var/log/privoxy (and type
fewer characters) but the power of habit forced my hand! Ha! :-)
