  • i'm completely lost

  • I've made bold what I suspect dhcpd is complaining about:

    php: /status_services.php: The command '/usr/local/sbin/dhcpd -user dhcpd -group _dhcp -chroot /var/dhcpd -cf /etc/dhcpd.conf vr0' returned exit code '1', the output was 'Internet Systems Consortium DHCP Server 4.2.1-P1 Copyright 2004-2011 Internet Systems Consortium.

    dhcpd is supposed to run as user dhcpd and member of group _dhcp but the system apparently doesn't know anything about group _dhcp. (I don't have this problem on either of my two pfSense systems.)

    Have you been meddling with system files?

    Does it come good after a reboot?



  • No i just hard rebooted the router after it got hang.
    thanks
