Just checked the code, this issue has been fixed for the future release.
Thanks for report this.

Hi everybody

I just made a test with Snort 2.9.4.5 where I realized that Snort can not be
reloaded anymore with:

kill -SIGHUP <pid>

The error message in the log is:

<1d>Apr  4 14:38:05 xyz snort[9213]: Reload via Signal Reload does not work
if you aren't root or are chroot'ed.
...
<1d>Apr  4 14:38:07 xyz snort[9213]: Snort exiting


I am wondering why it does not work anymore since this works totally fine
with Snort 2.9.4.0.

Thanks for any feedback

guido
