New page:
Explanation and solution of error messages you may experience while using CouchDB.

== Incorrect LD_LIBRARY_PATH ==

=== Problem ===

$ couchdb      
Apache CouchDB 0.8.0-incubating (LogLevel=info)
Apache CouchDB is starting.

{"init terminating in do_boot",{error,{open_error,-10}}‚Äč}

Crash dump was written to: erl_crash.dump
init terminating in do_boot ()

=== Solution ===

You must correctly set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable so that it picks up your
installed libraries.

Example running as normal user:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:/usr/local/js/lib couchdb

Example running as `couchdb` user:

echo LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:/usr/local/js/lib couchdb | sudo -u couchdb sh
