Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Trivial Update of "Installing_on_FreeBSD" by Istvan
Date Wed, 12 Jan 2011 17:26:33 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Couchdb Wiki" for change notification.

The "Installing_on_FreeBSD" page has been changed by Istvan.
The comment on this change is: Improper use of cat fixed.


  The user is added to {{{/etc/passwd}}} and should look similar to the following:
- shell# cat /etc/passwd |grep couchdb
+ shell#  grep couchdb /etc/passwd
  couchdb:*:1013:1013:Couchdb, time to relax:/var/lib/couchdb/:/usr/sbin/nologin
  To change any of these settings, please refrain from editing {{{/etc/passwd}}} and instead
use {{{pw user mod ...}}} or {{{vipw}}}. Make sure that the user has no shell, but instead
uses {{{/usr/sbin/nologin}}}. The '*' in the second field means that this user can not login
via password authorization. For details use {{{man 5 passwd}}}.
