Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-2287) couchdb 1.6 crash on FreeBSD 10
Date Wed, 30 Jul 2014 09:29:38 GMT


Dave Cottlehuber commented on COUCHDB-2287:

I just checked this on FreeBSD-11.0-CURRENT, all is good here. If you've upgraded couchdb,
did you ensure the erlang port also matches?

 In a default ports install, these /usr/local/* files should obviously be world readable;
something's gone wrong.

    drwxr-xr-x  10 root  wheel    14B 26 Jul 21:11 erlang/

Best is to su/sudo as the couchdb user, then run `couchdb -i` which is the interactive console,
and you can see pretty quickly what's not working. 

You'll only need to fix a few things after trying to run as root;  ensure permissions are
as Joan's mentioned: see
the OSX section with chmods  applies equally well to FreeBSD. Especially the .couch files
and their dirs, anything in /var/db/couchdb/ as well.

If the above can't help please email and we'll take it from there.
I'm closing this as not a problem, happy to reopen if we do find a bug.

> Dear All,
> I am using FreeBSD 10 and I install couchdb 1.6 from port without any problem. However
upon starting couchdb using service couchdb start, it crashed without having a specific reason.

> I looked for answer in google and many says due to permission in all the folders of couchdb
/var/{run log db}/couchdb and /usr/local/lib/couchdb - I set them all to couchdb and set mod
to 770 as many of results in google. However the couchdb won't start either.
> I tried to run as normal user (not couchdb user) and it will give me this error.
