Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-603) init script needlessly 'su's, and non-superuser use fails
Date Fri, 18 Dec 2009 17:08:18 GMT
init script needlessly 'su's, and non-superuser use fails

                 Key: COUCHDB-603
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Infrastructure
         Environment: Unix
            Reporter: Chad MILLER
            Priority: Trivial

The init script runs 'su' if the COUCHDB_USER variable is set, but it doesn't need to if the
script is already running as that user.  Add an additional condition on that test, so that
normal role users can start and stop the server.
