OK, ddclient working as it should, issue, permissions and ownership of /etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf is root on install needs to be ddclient, well thats what I have changed it to and its doing its thing, the conf is now being used 🙂 dns is updateing and checking as expected..

I'll patch that up and fix the post-upgrade issue too.

Leave it with me.

Just a heads up. I manually fixed the service to start with the correct config file (because I am dependent on this working). And I now see that it is doing it's job. But, I see these warnings in the log file:

Code: [Select]
Aug  5 16:39:08 e-smith ddclient[25408]: WARNING:  Cannot create file '/var/run/ddclient.pid'. (Permission denied)
, pointing in the direction that there is also a owner/permission problem with the /var/run/ddclient.pid file as well. So, if you are looking into fixing the bug, have a look at this issue as well.

So using /etc/ddclient/ddclient.conf  user ddclient 0644

Code: [Select]
Aug  5 16:39:08 e-smith ddclient[25408]: WARNING:  Cannot create file '/var/run/ddclient.pid'. (Permission denied)

on my reinstalled and then owner/perms reset for the conf not seeing that error

/var/run/ddclient/ddclient.pid  ddclient  0655

All clear

Ok, all good! Could be caused by me running it manually as root at one stage as a part of the troubleshooting.
