Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-8142) prevent the command "cassandra start" from starting a cluster
Date Sat, 07 Nov 2015 11:17:11 GMT


Robert Stupp commented on CASSANDRA-8142:

Running C* (or any other server application) as root is not a really good thing.
IMO we should refuse to start the C* daemon using the root account (uid 0) by default but
provide an option to override this when people explicitly enable it. WDYT?

> since "start" is not a valid option on the "cassandra" command, we should block cassandra
from starting.
