Plesk / Spamd Permission Error

Looking at /var/log/messages, I noticed the following:

[code]Feb 10 10:58:26 mail spam_hook[12873]: unable to open configuration file /etc/psa/psa.conf: Permission denied
Feb 10 10:58:26 mail spam_hook[12857]: unable to open configuration file /etc/psa/psa.conf: Permission denied[/code]

This is a bug introduced in one of the Plesk 9.2.* hotfixes / patches.

The problem was causing spam to not be automatically deleted (even when told to, after being marked as spam).

Seems the directory /etc/psa had the wrong permissions, a fix was found on the parallels forums, and involved simply chmod-ing the directory /etc/psa to 755 – this fixed the problem.

[code]chmod 755 /etc/psa[/code]
