Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-1086) Improve config file write-back behavior.
Date Sat, 16 Apr 2011 21:50:05 GMT


Jan Lehnardt commented on COUCHDB-1086:

local.ini should take precedence.

I'm a bit hazy on the use-case for local.d if we never write back to anything but local.ini.
Maybe it was though that plugins could have their own write-back files, but CouchDB doesn't
support any of that. Maybe Noah remembers?

Either way, geocouch.ini should go in default.d.

>                 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.
