Subject Fedora 17 yum install fails to add couchdb user
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 12:36:38 GMT
Following these instructions
I received an error when trying to add the couchdb user.  The output was :

useradd: Can't get unique system UID (no more available UIDs)
useradd: can't create user
warning: user couchdb does not exist - using root
Thus, when I go to run couchdb, I cannot run it under the couchdb user as the Wiki suggests.

1.       Does anyone know why this happened?

2.       Can I still run couchdb without that user?

3.       If not, can I add the user manually?
