    I have been getting a blank email from rkhunter 1.4.0 running on my server and on investigation i get this error about the directories not being accessible.
    I have searched the web but can not find an answer to fix the problem below. Any help would be appreciated...

    i think it didn't installed correctly, try download it again and reinstall it. make sure you use root user when installing it.

    i did install rkhunter following its README document:

    STANDALONE INSTALLATION
    =======================
    
    It is possible to run RKH standalone, that is, with it all being
    installed into one directory.
    
    To do this unpack RKH as described above, and then install it using
    the following command:
    
        ./installer.sh --layout custom . --install
    
    It is then necessary to change to the 'files' directory:
    
        cd files
    
    Within the directory will be a copy of the 'rkhunter.conf' configuration
    file. You can modify this file according to your requirements if you
    wish.
    
    To run RKH, as root simply enter the following command:
    
        ./rkhunter --propupd --check --sk
