Question Can't creat file in /var/log


Hi i am using horde. after i installed all the things, i found horde can't create the log file in /var/log/. the error message shown below

Warning: touch(): Unable to create file /var/log/horde.log because Permission denied in /usr/share/pear/Log/file.php on line 119

Warning: chmod(): No such file or directory in /usr/share/pear/Log/file.php on line 120

i would like to know which permission it talking about ? the permission of pear log module or horde.log file ??

pls. help!!

The permission being denied is that of the /var/log directory.

The best way to solve this problem depends on the setup (I don't know anything about horde), but creating a file (as root) called /var/log/horde.log, and then chown-ing it to the appropriate user should fix it.

Code:
su
touch /var/log/horde.log
chown hordeuser.hordegroup /var/log/horde.log
Where hordeuser is the user trying to create the file, and hordegroup is the group hordeuser belongs to.
