DId you try creating the logfile itself so unbound can append
to that file (read: append to an _existing_ file)?

Try this first:

	# touch /var/unbound/log/unbound.log

and restart the service. Also check your configuration file:
You can provide an absolute path for the logfile (for example
with the path and name listed above), so the entry would be:

	logfile: "/var/unbound/log/unbound.log"

See "man 5 unbound.conf" for details.
