Default SpamSnake 10.10 Problem - Bayes...

Hi All

I'm following through Rocky's tutorial for the SpamSnake and have run into a problem with the Bayes db.

I am getting the following error after running the "spamassassin -x -D -p /opt/MailScanner/etc/spam.assassin.prefs.conf --lint" command :

Dec 17 23:20:03.383 [26728] dbg: plugin: Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin:NSEval=HASH(0x4e5ce00 ) implements 'check_start', priority 0
Dec 17 23:20:03.384 [26728] dbg: bayes: database connection established
Dec 17 23:20:03.384 [26728] dbg: bayes: found bayes db version 3
Dec 17 23:20:03.384 [26728] dbg: bayes: unable to initialize database for root user, aborting!

I've checked my spam.assassin.prefs.conf file and the username and password match what I set them to when I created the database.

I don't want to carry on further with this until the problem is resolved..

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks topdog, that seemed to work.

I now have another problem fetching the nginx files but will start a new thread about that.
