Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1464) Unable to login to CouchDB
Date Fri, 13 Apr 2012 08:58:14 GMT
Unable to login to CouchDB

                 Key: COUCHDB-1464
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 1.0.3
         Environment: Apache CouchDB 1.0.1

Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS.

            Reporter: Petter Olofsson


Login to server with ordinary user accounts stopped working. Logging in with admin's defined
in local.ini still worked, but user account created as documents always responded with username/password

When the old users did not work, we started to create new users in Futon. 
Here are the requests from the logs when a user is created, and the failed login afterwards.
[Thu, 12 Apr 2012 14:22:57 GMT] [info] [<0.1392.0>] <ip> - - 'PUT' /_users/org.couchdb.user%3Apetter
[Thu, 12 Apr 2012 14:22:57 GMT] [info] [<0.1393.0>] <ip> - - 'POST' /_session

We restarted couch several times using
$ service couchdb restart
but it was still impossible to login with an ordinary user.

The problem was resolved by changing the log level to "debug" in local.ini and a restart.

After this change the login and sign-up/in process in futon worked fine, and the already created
user account worked fine. 

After changing the log level back to info the server continued to work fine.
