Subject [jira] [Created] (CASSANDRA-4058) Debian package does not create /var/lib/cassandra/data
Date Fri, 16 Mar 2012 17:33:43 GMT
Debian package does not create /var/lib/cassandra/data

                 Key: CASSANDRA-4058
             Project: Cassandra
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Packaging
         Environment: Ubuntu 11.10
            Reporter: Jacob Fenwick

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 not.

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?
