here is entry in crontab which I made
0 3 * * * su -c "/var/news/bin/news.daily expireover lowmark" news
0,5,10,15,20,25,30,35,40,45,50,55,59 * * * * su news -c

I also made entry for err files in appropriate file.

But when I try to create a new group I am getting this message
bash-2.03# ./ctlinnd newgroup be.comp.os.linux m
No file; did server die?
Can't send "newgroup" command (sendto failure) No such file or directory.

I have complete active file which I download from inn website.

I am not able to understand why it's not able to create group?

IF I check for ps -ef |grep inn I only found innwatch not innd

Can some one help me to install this correctly ?

Thanks in advance
