Configure CouchDB local.ini [log] level=debug
sudo to the right user. check permissions as you've done.
Use couchdb -i to get an interactive erlang shell.
if you don't see "1> Apache CouchDB 1.0.2 (LogLevel=debug) is
starting." straight off, then

run i(). to see if crypto_server is present. if not -> you've most
likely got erlang without SSL. Either recompile from source, or use a
different package - e.g. on debian erlang-ssl.

then try couch:start().

post results of i() and couch:start() to friendpaste, check in with
IRC or list for further suggestions.
