On Fedora 18 /var/run is actually a symlink to /run which is a tmpfs file 
system, so it should work. You probably need to check selinux isn't 
getting in your way (setenforce 0 to stop it blocking anything until 
reboot, or set SELINUX=permissive or SELINUX=disabled in 
/etc/selinux/config to change the setting on reboot). I do agree with the 
others though that Fedora is a bad choice for a server as you will need to 
upgrade it at least once a year, and it is sometimes less stable than 
something like CentOS.
