Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-538) Erlang crashing when log file cannot be written
Date Mon, 19 Oct 2009 12:49:31 GMT
Erlang crashing when log file cannot be written

                 Key: COUCHDB-538
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Infrastructure
    Affects Versions: 0.10
         Environment: Linux Ubuntu 32bit and 64bit
            Reporter: Simon Eisenmann
            Priority: Minor

When couchdb cannot write to its log file erlang just crashes without any hint what is going
wrong. This happens for instance if the log file directory path does not exists.

In some older releases (0.9) it seemed to have created the missing directories automatically
(if permissions are ok). 0.10 does not even try to create the directories. The log path needs
to exist.

At least a proper error message should be added to make clear that there is a problem writing
the log file.
