Subject Re: installing couchdb 1.0.1 will not override .010 ubuntu 10.04 install
Date Thu, 02 Sep 2010 20:29:27 GMT
I had the same problem.

I uninstalled Ubuntu's version prior to installing 1.0.1.
I didn't even get a logfile initially, as /opt/.../var/log/couchdb was owned by root. 
Changing ownership of the log folder and database_dir folder to couchdb:couchdb fixed it.

The permission settings should be fixed on 1.0.2, the installer should have teken car of it...
Did anyone file a bug on this?

Best regards
