|Here's what I did:
chown -R dan:dan /usr/ports
I also changed the cron job (in /etc/crontab) to run as dan:
53 6 * * * daemon /usr/local/bin/cvsup -P m
2>&1 | mail -s "buff Ports cvsup"
Note: The above actually appears on one line and is split into multiple lines to make
it easier to read. In your crontab, it should appears all on one line. And remember
to use tabs, not spaces, especially in the "53 6 * * *" part. This job
The first time my ports cron job ran, I got this error:
Updater failed: Cannot create
So I did this:
chown -R dan:dan sup
Then I ran the cvsup job again and it ran just fine.
