I've been trying to stay out of this thread, but oh well. The utils/run script
is for developers only. You should not be using this in a production setting. I
recommend you run through the following:

Both of those may be a little out of date, but they are written in such a way
that they should fix your problem, or give you the information you need to send
back to the list. Basically, if you get it working with the Troubleshooting
guide, then you have a problem with one of the following:

  * Your previous installation is borked

  * The couchdb user has issues with it's home directory

  * The couchdb user doesn't have permission for /var/run/couchdb

  * The couchdb user doesn't have permission for /var/log/couchdb

Hope this helps.
