Subject [jira] [Created] (COUCHDB-1586) couchdb should do sanity checks early on for permissions issues
Date Wed, 31 Oct 2012 19:06:11 GMT
Dave Cottlehuber created COUCHDB-1586:
-----------------------------------------

             Summary: couchdb should do sanity checks early on for permissions issues
                 Key: COUCHDB-1586
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-1586
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Database Core
    Affects Versions: 1.3
            Reporter: Dave Cottlehuber
            Assignee: Dave Cottlehuber
            Priority: Minor
             Fix For: 1.3


many early installation failures are due to missing permissions / access to key directories.

- couchdb shell script can check for these before the cryptic erlang VM barfs vomitus 
- couch.erl and couch_app.erl could provide more details on missing erlang applications etc.

These are all quick fixes unless somebody has a better idea!

Any other suggestions?
