Oh! So now I feel silly. I'm quite sorry for the noise, Noah. You have found
the source of my confusion. Somehow I didn't really know the distinction
between shell variables and environment variables[1]. No wonder I was
frustrated trying to follow you...

The su man page didn't help with its -m flag. That's what sent me off track.


All clear now. Just needed to export it.

If you put this:

       export ERL_MAX_PORTS=1024

Into this:

       /etc/default/couchdb

Then running this:

       /etc/init.d/couchdb start

Would pick up the value in the first example, and pass it to Erlang.

So as far as I know, the CouchDB daemon is already configurable in the
manner you describe. If the above does not work, then it should, and that is
a bug. If you're not wanting to use the standard init system for CouchDB,
then you are on your own in terms of setting up the correct environment for
whatever system you have designed.
