First thanks so much it runs great and your support was invaluable. I will be supporting the site and coming back much more often thanks to this experience.

Last thing for my mail server. My fuzzyclean mysql process runs at 100% I have verified the correct settings are in /usr/sbin/fuzzy-cleanmysql. Any ideas what could be causing the cpu usage. Have you seen this before? How long does the process usually run?

When did you do the actual installation? I recently updated the fuzzy clean script, so you might want to give it another shot.

Let me know how it works out.

Hey Rocky,

i just copied your new code from the howto and changed the username/password variables.

started the script with --verbose but it still hangs at 100% cpu. simultaneously doing "show processlist;" in mysql doesn't show the fuzzyocr user connecting.

manually connection with the username/pwd to mysql seems to be OK:
mysql -ufuzzyocr -p*password*

maybe a perl-DBI problem? how can i simply debug this.

Default fixed

found this post on the howto:

fuzzy-cleanmysql bug?
Submitted by John M (not registered) on Wed, 2011-04-06 19:40.

The /usr/sbin/fuzzy-cleanmysql didn't work for my until I changed the following line
while () {
while(<CONFIG>) {
A nasty infinite loop occurs otherwise.
