First of all thank you to all who made Multiple instances possible on FreeBSD !!

Please have a look, this is my setup:


	tor_instances="inst1 inst2"

2 torrc files with each different DIR OR CONTROL in /usr/local/etc/tor/
	torrc at inst1
	torrc at inst2

2 different log files in /var/log/tor/

After a long work and trying , system up an running I do get this messsage after "service tor reload" -> tor instance inst1: tor instance inst2: tor main instance: tor not running? (check /var/run/tor/tor.pid).

So I assume their should be a main instance entry as well?

How long can keys and other stuff from a linux machine being transferred to a BSD one before they get to old and useless for the system (to even start)itself?

What should be the name of the folder of the main database in /var/db/tor/ wile having instance at inst1, instance at inst2 there already?

Thanks again and good night
