Hi Gabriel,

It is very simply really, unbound-control complains that it cannot open
a file.   This file is created by unbound-control-setup ; but by default
that probably put it in /usr/local/etc/ like the system defaults, and
not in /var/unbound like in your tutorial.

Copy or symlink the files unbound_control.pem (*pem and *key) from where
they are now.

If you set chroot: "" in your config; some pathname mangling is
disabled, and this may make things work.  The right thing is to copy the
files, though.

Best regards,
