Subject [Cassandra Wiki] Update of "GettingStarted2" by EricEvans
Date Wed, 23 Sep 2009 19:30:21 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Cassandra Wiki" for change notification.

The "GettingStarted2" page has been changed by EricEvans:
http://wiki.apache.org/cassandra/GettingStarted2?action=diff&rev1=11&rev2=12

  
  The distribution's sample configuration `conf/storage-conf.xml` contains reasonable defaults
for single node operation, but you will need to make sure that the paths exist for `CommitLogDirectory`,
`DataFileDirectories`, `CalloutLocation`, `BootstrapFileDirectory`, and `StagingFileDirectory`.
Additionally, take a minute now to look over the logging configuration in `conf/log4j.properties`
and make sure that directories exist for the configured log file(s) as well.
  
- And now for the moment of truth, start up Cassandra by invoking `bin/cassandra -f` from
the command line<<FootNote(For more information on how to control the behavior of the
startup scripts, see RunningCassandra)>>. The service should start in the foreground
and log gratuitously to standard-out. Assuming you don't see messages with scary words like
"error", or "fatal", or anything that looks like a Java stack trace, then chances are you've
succeeded. To be certain though, take some time to try out the examples in CassandraCli and
ThriftInterface before moving on. Also, if you run into problems, Don't Panic, calmly proceed
to [[#if_something_goes_wrong|If Something Goes Wrong]].

  == Step 3: Running a cluster ==
  Setting up a Cassandra cluster is ''almost'' as simple as repeating [[#running_a_single_node|Step
2]] for each node in your cluster. There are a few minor exceptions though.
