  === Solution ===
  You need to make sure that the user running couchdb has permissions to write to /usr/local/var/lib/couchdb
and /usr/local/var/log/couchdb. This error message may also appear if CouchDB is trying to
bind to a port that is already in use.
+ Also check that the directories specified in your local.ini are there, like the database_dir
and the directory where the log file is created. If they are not there, create them.
