Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-181) Should check permissions when starting
Date Tue, 23 Dec 2008 11:14:44 GMT
Should check permissions when starting
--------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-181
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-181
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 0.8.1
         Environment: OpenBSD 4.4-RELEASE, Erlang 5.6.3
            Reporter: Simon Lundstrom
            Priority: Minor


When couchdb starts up it should check and warn about permissions on files and directories
that it needs to write in/on. Now it just starts, outputs the config (does it always do that
when something is wrong?) and does nothing.

~/soffa % sudo -u nobody bin/couchdb 
Apache CouchDB 0.8.1-incubating (LogLevel=info)
Apache CouchDB is starting.

Config Info /home/simmel/soffa/etc/couchdb/couch.ini:
        CurrentWorkingDir=/home/simmel/soffa
        DbRootDir=/home/simmel/soffa/var/lib/couchdb
        BindAddress="127.0.0.1"
        Port="5984"                                                             
        DocumentRoot=/home/simmel/soffa/share/couchdb/www
        LogFile=/home/simmel/soffa/var/log/couchdb/couch.log
        UtilDriverDir=/home/simmel/soffa/lib/couchdb/erlang/lib/couch-0.8.1-incu
bating/priv/lib
        DbUpdateNotificationProcesses=
        FullTextSearchQueryServer=
        javascript=/home/simmel/soffa/bin/couchjs /home/simmel/soffa/share/couch
db/server/main.js

The issue here is that ~/soffa/var/ is not writeable for the nobody user but couchdb should
warn about it.
