pfsense DHCP server not giving out IP's

Recently one of my pfSense boxes wasn't handing out IP's.  In the DHCP log it said: "There's already a DHCP server running".

Here's how to fix it:

Go to Diagnostics -> Command Prompt and execute this shell command:

rm /var/dhcpd/var/run/
Make sure to restart the DHCP server once this is done (in Status -> Services)
