Subject [jira] Updated: (COUCHDB-153) Erlang should warn about log/data file permissions
Date Mon, 26 Jan 2009 16:21:59 GMT


Ulises Cervino Beresi updated COUCHDB-153:

    Attachment: issue-153.patch

Attached a patch that somewhat "fixes" this issue. The check tries to create the directory
assigned in the .ini file and if it fails instructs couchdb to stop starting up while reporting
(with a nicer than erlang errors message) what the problem was.

> CouchDB is installed as root for most people, and hence without remembering to change
the permissions on the log/data directories, errors are very common. The problems caused by
incorrect permissions can be very confusing. We should re-add the checks for these that used
to be in the init script, but place them in CouchDB core. We need to do this so that the multiple
configuration settings will be taken account for.
