Hey guys,

snort-2903 --enable-reload, centos5, using the rpm/snortd

Whenever i stop snort i get the error
snort[28654]: Could not remove pid file /var/run//snort_eth0.pid:
Permission denied

No biggie as it then starts ok; buttt, when i HUP snort it dies with
that same error; so i cant HUP it.

I googled and found solutions but for other distros that dont work with Centos.

I tried chown snort:snort to the pid and pid.lck files but same error persists.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,
