This is my first crack at an nntp server.
I need an nntp server just for private groups on an intranet.
I setup inn on redhat 7.1 by rpm. I read the INSTALL file completely but am
having problems with creating groups.
First, it appears as if the rpm puts everything in /var/spool/news.
I did not see a 'db' folder in there so I created one.
I then created a file db/active with these contents:
control 0000000000 0000000000 y
control.cancel 0000000000 0000000000 y
control.checkgroups 0000000000 0000000000 y
control.newgroup 0000000000 0000000000 y
control.rmgroup 0000000000 0000000000 y
junk 0000000000 0000000000 y
to 0000000000 0000000000 y
I used the newsgroups.minimal file as the default.
The INSTALL file did not go into what should go into the 'active.times' file. I
assumed it should be blank since it looks like dynamic information is going to
go into it.
I then ran:
This did not return anything and no new files were created. This is where I am
stuck. I am assuming it needs to make some files.
For fun, I tried starting in but got:
Please run makehistory and/or makedbz before starting innd.
Thank you all for any help!
Then I ran:
