This is after a fresh install of ClamAV on a new FreeBSD 11.2 install. The directory rights are root:wheel and -rwx-r x-r x/0755, and clamd.pid makes its .pid fine because it it runs as root. However, freshclam runs as clamav, and thus cannot write it's .pid, and thus the error makes sense because it has no write privilege. It doesn't seem to affect the operation:Can't save PID to file /var/run/clamd/freshclam.pid: Permission denied
ps -ax|grep freshclam 1989 - IWs 0:00.00 /usr/local/bin/freshclam -d
Edit: Actually, 0664 or 0660 would probably be better 0770.
