Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1400) Critical crash of Futon after misconfigured bind_address

Critical crash of Futon after misconfigured bind_address

                 Key: COUCHDB-1400
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Futon
    Affects Versions: 0.11.2
         Environment: CentOS 5.5 (64-bit)
            Reporter: Tim
             Fix For: 0.11.2

I made a mistake to change the configuration table's httpd/bind_address parameter to my domain,
the domain that looks like etc. That was supposed to be left at or I remember making this mistake long time ago but now basically I can't access anything
from either localhost and external. 

I am unable to reverse my setting because working with /etc/couchdb/default.ini or local.ini
never affected this in the first place (spent 2 hours trying to modify these fails in order
to get external access of couchDB). 

So Futon must have changed something when I set it. When I change the value, it stuck at the
error: Some of the changes require database restart. Since then, I can never access my couchDB.

I tried to yum remove erlang, yum remove couchdb several times. Checked to see if any default.ini
or local.ini remains, restart system, log out users, but none of above works. 

Please help me with this problem as soon as possible.
