Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-7136) Change default paths to ~ instead of /var
Date Fri, 02 May 2014 22:28:17 GMT


Jeremiah Jordan commented on CASSANDRA-7136:

We are making this change at a major version flip, you need to diff that anyway to see what
you need to fix, as all kinds of yaml stuff becomes invalid and new stuff added.  bin/cassandra
from the tar.gz should default to $CASSANDRA_HOME/data, you almost never want it going to
/var from a tar.gz install in my experience.  Hell, for most package manager installs you
don't actually want it going to /var, but at least for those you actually have permission
to write there most of the time.

with the command line.
