rancid not creating config files

So I have a fully working Rancid/CVS/ViewVC install after following this guys blog: http://ciscoskills.net/2015/02/27/configuring-rancid/


My issue right now.. I'm getting no errors, in face teh rancid log files are empty.  So is the config folder of any devices.  I have the following config setup:

Got help from the rancid-discuss@shrubbery.net mailing list.

router.db formatting must be like so:

routername;cisco;up

routername:cisci:up
