First time using this app, I am getting the following error when reading syslog:

File /var/log/syslog for file ID syslog1 does not exist anymore...

The file is existed:

 ls -la /var/log/syslog
-rw-r----- 1 syslog adm 164807 Jun 18 19:17 /var/log/syslog
this is the json:
"syslog1": {
    "display": "Syslog",
    "path": "/var/log/syslog",
    "refresh": 5,
    "max": 50,
    "notify": false,
    "format": {
        "regex": "|(.*?) ([0-9]{1,2}) ([0-9]{1,2}:[0-9]{1,2}:[0-9]{1,2}) ([a-zA-Z0-9_\-\.]{1,256}) ([A-Za-z0-9_\-\/\.]{1,32})\[(.*?)\]:(.*)|",
        "match": {
            "Date": 3,
            "Source": 4,
            "Tag_ID": 5,
            "PID": 6,
            "Message": 7
        "types": {
            "Date": "date:H:i:s",
            "Source": "txt",
            "Tag_ID": "txt",
            "PID": "numeral",
            "Message": "txt"

What can it be?
