  Why do you think it's supposed to log there?

  What have you configured to MAKE the server log things there?

  I asked this a few days ago, and you didn't answer.

  Please answer.

  You are aware that the detail files are written only when the server receives accounting packets.

  <sigh>  Please post the debug output, as suggested in the FAQ, "man" pages, web pages, and daily on this list.

  If you can't figure out the problem from reading the debug output, maybe we can figure it out.  That's why we ask for it.

  Don't.  Post it as text.  The mailing list strips viruses, PNGs, zip files, etc.

  It's no difficult to post it as text.  Everyone else does.

  That presumes you have some understanding of how the server works.

  The server comes with lots of documentation.  Each module and configuration item is extensively documented.  Please READ them.

  Making random changes in the hope that it will magically cause things to work is... not a good process.
