Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-540) oauth_token_users seems to be in the wrong place
Date Fri, 23 Oct 2009 15:36:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-540?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12769261#action_12769261

Chris Jones commented on COUCHDB-540:
-------------------------------------

Paul: The FHS gives guidance as to which directories it's appropriate to store which kinds
of data.
http://www.pathname.com/fhs/pub/fhs-2.3.html#PURPOSE31 talks about /var, which I would think
would typically be the most correct place for this kind of data to be written, specifically
/var/lib/ 
(in the same way that mysql's daemon config lives in /etc/mysql/, but it writes the raw datafiles
containing its databases in /var/lib/mysql)

I don't particularly mind how the data is stored (although LDAP seems like overkill for simple
one key/one value user data), and if there is already an alternative option we can use I would
definitely investigate that, I just care as a sysadmin about /etc/ being easy to manage :)

> If one has many users, the oath_token_users section of /etc/couchdb/local.ini becomes
quite large. This:
> a) makes legitimate configuration of the server less friendly
> b) makes the file extremely hard to manage via version control
> c) is probably a violation of the FHS.
