Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7136) Change default paths to ~ instead of /var
Date Fri, 02 May 2014 19:51:19 GMT


Albert P Tobey commented on CASSANDRA-7136:

Agreed on $CASSANDRA_HOME/data.

Having slept on it, I don't think the defaults in cassandra.yaml should change. It should
always reflect sane defaults for *production* use. What we're talking about here is non-production,
so it gets the short straw and will do the yaml mangling.

I'm leaning towards adding a separate launcher script as well, something like ./
or some other name with obvious meaning. Various installations and testing packages have come
to expect consistent behavior from the current setup and there's no good reason to change
those if we can simply add another script.

> Defaulting to /var makes it more difficult for both multi-user systems and people unfamiliar
with the command line.
