Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-4058) Debian package does not create /var/lib/cassandra/data
Date Fri, 16 Mar 2012 23:32:44 GMT


Brandon Williams commented on CASSANDRA-4058:

My point is that the 'cassandra' user's home directory is /var/lib/cassandra, so it should
already own it when the package creates this user.  If you ahead of time create this directory
with the wrong permissions, that is your mistake to correct, not the package's to solve with
brute force.

> I installed Cassandra using the Debian packages as described here:
> When trying to start Cassandra using /etc/init.d/cassandra start I get this error: unable to mkdirs /var/lib/cassandra/data
> The directory /var/lib/cassandra exists, but the directory /var/lib/cassandra/data does
> I would assume the data directory should have been created with the correct permissions,
but it was not.
> However, I tried creating /var/lib/cassandra/data and setting it the permissions to 666
and setting the user/group to cassandra/cassandra, and now I get this error:
> java.lang.AssertionError: Directory /var/lib/cassandra/data is not accessible.
> So what could possibly be the problem here?
