BIND daemon fails to start

I'm trying to run the named daemon on my web server.  I've properly configured the daemon, but when I go to start it, it fails with no explanation.  /var/log/everything.log reveals the following:

Oct 23 20:21:42 Ba-zing named[4376]: starting BIND 9.3.1 -u named
Oct 23 20:21:42 Ba-zing named[4376]: loading configuration from '/etc/named.conf'
Oct 23 20:21:42 Ba-zing named[4376]: listening on IPv4 interface lo, 127.0.0.1#53
Oct 23 20:21:42 Ba-zing named[4376]: listening on IPv4 interface eth0, 192.168.15.149#53
Oct 23 20:21:42 Ba-zing named[4376]: command channel listening on 127.0.0.1#953
Oct 23 20:21:42 Ba-zing named[4376]: command channel listening on ::1#953
Oct 23 20:21:42 Ba-zing named[4376]: couldn't open pid file '/var/run/named.pid': Permission denied
Oct 23 20:21:42 Ba-zing named[4376]: exiting (due to early fatal error)

Any thoughts?

Re: BIND daemon fails to start

you're starting it as root, right?

Re: BIND daemon fails to start

then you should have write permissions in /var/run. make sure your filesystem is ok.
