Subject [jira] [Resolved] (COUCHDB-1785) Couchdb 1.2.0 Keeps crashing
Date Wed, 01 May 2013 08:56:16 GMT


Robert Newson resolved COUCHDB-1785.

    Resolution: Invalid

Hi Pieter,

{error,emfile} means that CouchDB tried to open a file but had reach its limit of open file
descriptors. The means to increase this is OS-specific but on Debian/Ubuntu, for example,
you can edit /etc/security/limits.conf and increase the limits there but be sure to enable in /etc/pam.d/su as CouchDB su's to 'couchdb' during startup.
