Razor2 / Spamassassin

Hi! I'm having a small problem with Razor. This is showing up in my logs:

spamd[5569]: razor2: razor2 check failed: No such file or directory razor2: Can't read conf file: /etc/mail/spamassassin/.razor/razor-agent.conf at /usr/share/perl5/Mail/SpamAssassin/Plugin/Razor2.pm line 326.

The razor-agent.conf file exists here:

I'm not sure why it's checking in /etc/mail/spamassassin instead of /etc/spamassassin. How do I fix this? Or should I simply copy the file?

Check /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf (or /etc/spamassassin/local.cf in case this is where it is) and see how this line looks like:
razor_config /etc/mail/spamassassin/.razor/razor-agent.conf

If you have the mail there - remove it and try again (restarting spamd of course before this)

I'll give that a try, thanks. I'll let you know how I get on.

Yup, I had:

razor_config /etc/mail/spamassassin/.razor/razor-agent.conf

That was incorrect. But I also had to change the following in /etc/spamassassin/.razor/razor-agent.conf from:

razorhome              = /etc/mail/spamassassin/.razor/


razorhome              = /etc/spamassassin/.razor/

So both were wrong? This installation had gone strange - if both were wrong, probably it was installed in the other folder and manually moved. Or something had gone wrong.  

Anyway - good to hear that you are back up and running. I would grep for
in all folders under /etc/spamassassin and make sure you do not have other surprises.

Thanks, will check that. It might have happened when spamassassin was installed twice (once via apt-get and once through cpan - I got rid of the cpan version).
I would have removed both versions and installed it properly where I wanted it.

But yep - that would explain it (although it is still a bit weird as they are in the wrong forlders to be just that). Maybe something confused one of the two installations.

Oh well - if it works now, all is good.
