These are the paths to the programs.. It just doesn't know where to put the
log. Depending on where you run it from, it will try to write the log file
to that directory. eg. If it's being run from a startup script (eg
/etc/rc.d/* <- depending on version/distribution) it will try to write to
/etc/rc.d/*.. which it's not allowed to do.

That should work, yep.
