Thanks for pointing that out. That file only has old info in it since I
changed /root/build-couchdb/build/etc/couchdb/local.ini to the settings
shown here.

---------------  local.ini --------------
database_dir    = /mnt/db/couch_dbs
view_index_dir  = /mnt/db/couch_views
uri_file             = /mnt/db/couch.uri

bind_address =

secret = xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
require_valid_user = true

level = debug
include_sasl = false
file = /mnt/db/couch.log

root = -xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

algorithm = utc_random

After booting, /mnt/db/ is there, but the log file is missing.  It isn't
being created.  There is no permission issue since everything is running as

I just now discovered that when I run couchdb manually, futon works fine
but I'm still not getting a log file created.

Is it possible this log problem is the root of the big problem?  Can I
debug to find out where the log is ending up?  I did a find / -name
*couchdb.log and only the one old location showed up.  Can couch run
without a log file?

I looked at the db configuration using futon and it matched my local.ini

Have I given any new hints to the problem?  I need more help.
