I reinstalled slash and made sure that I assigned 'slash' as the user during the installation process. Now, when I try to start slash I get this:
 
$ /etc/init.d/slash start
Starting slashd virtslash: ok PID = 24714
$ Can't open /usr/local/slash/site/wwww.xxxxxxx.org/logs/slashd.pid: Permiss
ion denied at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i386-linux/Slash/Utility/System.pm line 209.
 
I set all permissions to slash:slash starting with /usr/local/slash - anyone any idea what's going on?
 
Sorry for all the posting btw - there is some documentation, but it does not cover these types of problems.
