    Help! Need Directory Structure for /var/log on FreeBSD

    Help!!!!

    I deleted my /var/log directory to clean up space, and now Exim won't work.

    Can anyone please post the directory and subdirectory structure for /var/log on a FreeBSD system? I am hoping that with the right directories, the files will rewrite themselves...

    Thank you, thank you!

    By default freebsd doesn't have any subdirectories under /var/log, just logfiles. If however you have third party stuff installed such as exim, it may create it's own subdirectories.

    Based on the startup errors you get from exim and/or the exim configs you should be able to piece things back together though.

    Off the top of my head you will need the following system logfiles at least:

    auth.log
    cron
    wtmp
    dmesg.today
    lastlog
    maillog
    messages
    security
    sendmail

    And no doubt others.

    Be careful with that rm command.
