Hi Lowell, The port maintainer wasn't able to reply to my first email, however, he included the following in a reply to my post in questions which I've included in case you should find it useful: Check to make sure your /usr/local/etc/ventrilo_srv.ini file can be read by the ventrilo user/group. chgrp ventrilo /usr/local/etc/ventrilo_srv.ini Also make sure that the log file is writable by the ventrilo user. chown /usr/local/ventrilo-server/ventrilo_srv.log
I still am having no luck with it starting up by itself on a reboot, which is my main goal, however, I'll keep on trying and have asked another question. Not sure what else is to be done other than enable it in /etc/rc.conf Thanks Miles On 11/13/06, Lowell Gilbert <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:

Can you try calling the script by hand, giving the "forcestart" parameter?
