Good day,

I have a problem wherein daloradius doesn't read the freeradius log file.
Do I need to chown or chmod anything? Am using CentOS 6.4, and log file is
located in /var/log/radius/radius.log. I already chmod'ded 777 the log file
and it still wouldn't open thru daloradius interface. I can open it using
cat though.

/usr/local/var/log/radius/radius.log, /var/log/radius/radius.log' but
couldn't find it.

in /rep-logs-radius.php
