It's possible that the chain is already running? Try running ps -x to see a list of processes, and look out for multichaind with the chain name.

In my case, i forced to shutdown the node runningthe server. After the restart I couldn't run the block chain and I get the same message.
After digging a bit in the permissions.log I found out that the database is corrupted. Is there a way to regenarate the permission database? Or solve this issue in another way?
The next alpha should offer proper support for database rebuilding. In the meantime please see this answer:
