Description Seth 2020-05-28 00:36:06 UTC
The bitcoin-daemon package's default rc.d script has a permissions error.

To duplicate:
# pkg install bitcoin-daemon
# sysrc bitcoind_enable="YES"
# service bitcoind start
# Error: Unable to create the PID file '/var/db/bitcoin/bitcoind.pid': Permission denied

To fix, edit /usr/local/etc/rc.d/bitcoind:
remove line pidfile="${bitcoind_data_dir}/bitcoind.pid"
uncomment #pidfile="/var/run/${name}.pid"
