That will happen if you change the user that the service is running as
without also chown'ing the log files, since typically they get created
with write permission only for the owner.

You are using the *-config scripts to install those services, right? 
They will take care of all the boring details for you.  However, if you
have remnants (such as an existing sshd service) they will not try to
overwrite what you've got already.
