What does the error “WARNING: (7026-76-83) Could not open log file – check permissions” mean?

The “could not open log file – check permissions” error is a generic one on a Windows machine. The Urchin code is getting a “cannot open the file” error from the OS, and is displaying this error. Unfortunately, the error codes from a Windows machine arent’ very descriptive to begin with, so Urchin just assumes it a permissions problem.

With that said, for whatever reason, Urchin is unable to open the file and read through the contents, and is therefore causing the error. It could be benign, but there is no way to tell.

On a *nix machine there is a bit more that you can do. You can try to change the owner of the directory using the chown command. Just set the owner to the username that Urchin is running as.
