Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-1086) Improve config file write-back behavior.
Date Thu, 10 Mar 2011 03:11:59 GMT


Michael Wiederhold commented on COUCHDB-1086:

I installed on Ubuntu 10.04 with the 64bit download from I was also somewhat
surprised that it had geocouch in it. Either was local.ini is not the top level config file.
(Also the geocouch config is contained in etc/couchdb/local.d/)

>                 Key: COUCHDB-1086
>                 URL:
>             Project: CouchDB
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Futon
>         Environment: Ubuntu 10.04
>            Reporter: Michael Wiederhold
>            Priority: Minor
> 1) I install couchdb and change the bind address in default.ini to so I can access
couch remotely.
> 2) In futon I change the bind address to and then refresh the web page an the
web ui disappears.
> 3) I go back into the config file default.ini and the bind address is still
> 4) I then go into local.ini and there is nothing except for comments.
> 5) I restart the server and it binds to and I cannot see futon.
> The issue is that when changing the bind address in futon, futon puts the new address
in the config file with the highest priority which is in this case the geocouch config file,
but the proper place to put the new bind address is in local.ini.
> I marked this as critical because I can see it affecting a decent amount of users. Should
be a quick fix.
