Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-2638) CouchDB should not be writing /etc/couchdb/local.ini
Date Mon, 16 Mar 2015 15:39:38 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-2638?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14363361#comment-14363361

ILYA commented on COUCHDB-2638:
-------------------------------

You might be able to achieve the desired behavior by adding following into vm.args

echo '-couch_ini /usr/local/etc/couchdb/default.ini /usr/local/etc/couchdb/local.ini /var/run/couch/local.ini'
>> vm.args

Last file in the list will need write access. Make sure the path exists.

> I am getting such messages in log on FreeBSD:
> > Could not write config file /usr/local/etc/couchdb/local.ini: permission denied
> The problem is that CoachDB supplies the original copy of local.ini, and it is treated
as a template for this configuration file. It is placed into /usr/local/etc/couchdb/local.ini.sample,
and its copy is placed into /usr/local/etc/couchdb/local.ini. Everything under /etc is what
admin configures. Ideally admin can compare local.ini and local.ini.sample and see if anything
in default configuration was modified compared to the suggested sample.
> When the executable itself modifies local.ini too, this makes it very confusing. Admin
will be confused if he should or shouldn't touch this file.
> My suggestion is that CouchDB should copy local.ini under /var/db/, or somewhere else,
and write it there. /etc isn't supposed to be writable by the process.
