Wouter,

Thank you for that idea! I did what you said and I see the following
message:

Could not open logfile /home/unbound/var/log/unbound.log: No such file
or directory

However, the file DOES exist (I touch'd it):

[unbound at ns2 ~]$ ls -l /home/unbound/var/log
total 0
- -rw-rw-r-- 1 unbound unbound 0 Feb  4 09:25 unbound.log

What's wrong?

Regards,

Sofía
