    POP - Apache - Tripwire Database

    My POP is shutting down every weekend and I am assuming it is because of a cron job.

    I looked at the logs and saw...
    /etc/cron.daily/tripwire-check:

    **** Error: Tripwire database for mysite.com not found. ****
    **** Run /etc/tripwire/twinstall.sh and/or tripwire --init. ****

    My server is attempting a cron each day that involves running "tripwire database" however, I don't have it installed. What is it? Should I run the install script?

    This is the message sent to my root email from Cron Daemon on Friday (when the POP went down)

    /etc/cron.daily/00webalizer:

    Webalizer V2.01-09 (Linux 2.4.7-10enterprise) English
    Using logfile /var/log/httpd/access_log (clf)

    /etc/cron.daily/tripwire-check:

    **** Error: Tripwire database for mysite.com not found. ****
    **** Run /etc/tripwire/twinstall.sh and/or tripwire --init. ****

    Any idea how I can fix this daily/weekly error?

    Thanks

    You installed tripwire correct? Check the tripwire config file, possibly the tripwire docs will have something about this.

    I believe this may get installed sometimes on the initial install. Tripwire (http://www.tripwire.org) is a security tool and basically after running the setup and rules files it keeps a database of your system files and if something is edited it trips the system.
