Subject Re: [jira] Updated: (COUCHDB-393) Cannot discover currently running http port if ini file specifies port 0
Date Sat, 25 Sep 2010 17:47:38 GMT
For /var/lib/

http://www.pathname.com/fhs/pub/fhs-2.3.html#PURPOSE38

State information is generally used to preserve the condition of an
application (or a group of inter-related applications) between
invocations and between different instances of the same application.

For /var/run/

http://www.pathname.com/fhs/pub/fhs-2.3.html#PURPOSE46

This directory contains system information data describing the system
since it was booted.

Ie, things that describe an instance of a running program go in
/var/run, where things that must remain valid across multiple
instances of the same program go in /var/lib. A randomly chosen port
is obviously only valid for a single instance of the program, so
should be placed in /var/run.
