I've recently attempted to move my /var directory form the root
filesystem to a new filesystem I created on my hardrive, unfortunately I
neglected to command "cp" to preserve the files' ownerships while
copying the files form the old /var directory.
While most things seem to be working fine with this (mosf of the files
were seem to have been owned by root:staff anyway) some things dont:
1. Exim - I managed to get it to work by chownning the /var/log/mail and
/var/spool/mail to mail:adm and chawning the users' spool files to be
owned by the users - I hope this is the way it should be.
2. MySql - It doesn't work. it seems to be a problem with
/var/run/mysqld/mysql.sock but it doesn't seem to be there, maybe I
should change the directoryes permission? to what?
3. ws-imapd Seems to be working _very_ slow when accessing a user's
primary spool file, can it have a problem with creating a lockfile or
Is there somwhere I can find a good specification to what the file
permissions should be?
Is there a tool that can fix it all up for me?
