Subject Apache CouchDB needs write permission on the log directory: /
Date Mon, 09 Jun 2008 20:42:32 GMT
I'm just trying out 0.8.0 of Couch and I'm running into the error

"Apache CouchDB needs write permission on the log directory: /"

when starting Couch in the background. If I just run the database
directly, it works fine.

It appears that Couch thinks that the log directory is in /. I noticed
that the couch.ini file has a LogFile option, which was '/couch.log'.
I've set it to 'LogFile=/opt/local/var/log/couchdb/couch.log', but I'm
still getting the same error.

Any hints?

Thanks.
