Sympa cannot see the socket /var/run/log

What version of FreeBSD are you running?
Check to see if syslogd is running
ps -ax |grep syslogd
-----root 1112 0.0 0.5 1376 908 ?? Ss 3:19PM 0:00.11 syslogd
-----root 1541 0.0 0.1 372 252 p0 R+ 6:43PM 0:00.00 grep
Try restarting the service
/etc/rc.d/syslogd restart
-----I did it and nothing

If this does not fix the issue then see what log sockets should be created.
should see /var/run/log
------file is empty
cat /var/run/syslogd.sockets
------file is empty

Quick answer is to add /var/run/log to /var/run/syslogd.sockets then restart syslog. If this does not work then you have an out of date /etc/rc.d/syslogd script.

Longer answer is to review your system. My guess is that you have upgraded from an earlier release of FreeBSD and missed something, possibly the mergemaster step. The Handbook should be able to help.
There are other languages
