Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-153) Erlang should warn about log/data file permissions

Ulises Cervino Beresi commented on COUCHDB-153:
-----------------------------------------------

Right, good stuff then.

Will remove appropriate io:formats and stick to ?LOG_X. Will try again with stop() even though
it didn't do as advertised the first time (maybe I missed something).

> 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.
