Subject [jira] [Created] (DIRSERVER-2173) Linux binary installation fails because RUN_AS_GROUP not used in chown commands

Chris Thain created DIRSERVER-2173:
--------------------------------------

             Summary: Linux binary installation fails because RUN_AS_GROUP not used in chown
commands
                 Key: DIRSERVER-2173
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-2173
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-M20
            Reporter: Chris Thain


The change implemented in DIRSERVER-1995 only works for installs on Linux hosts in which $RUN_AS_USER
is also a valid group.

The following trace shows the case of how the Linux binary installation of ApacheDS fails
when the $RUN_AS_USER is not also an existing group:

Do you agree to the above license terms? [yes or no]
yes
Unpacking the installer...
Extracting the installer...
Where do you want to install ApacheDS? [Default: /opt/apacheds-2.0.0-M20]

Where do you want to install ApacheDS instances? [Default: /var/lib/apacheds-2.0.0-M20]

What name do you want for the default instance? [Default: default]

Where do you want to install the startup script? [Default: /etc/init.d]

Which user do you want to run the server with (if not already existing, the specified user
will be created)? [Default: apacheds]

Which group do you want to run the server with (if not already existing, the specified group
will be created)? [Default: apacheds]
servers
Installing...
chown: invalid group: `apacheds:apacheds'
chown: invalid group: `apacheds:apacheds'
chown: invalid group: `apacheds:apacheds'
An error occurred when installing ApacheDS.
ApacheDS installation failed.

In this case 'apacheds' is not a valid group on the Linux host so the install "fails". But
$RUN_AS_GROUP is set to 'servers' which is a valid group on the host so the install should
not fail. The sh/install.sh script in the binary release needs to be updated so that the chown
commands use $RUN_AS_USER:$RUN_AS_GROUP instead of the current $RUN_AS_USER:$RUN_AS_USER:

chown -R $RUN_AS_USER:$RUN_AS_GROUP $APACHEDS_HOME_DIRECTORY
chown -R $RUN_AS_USER:$RUN_AS_GROUP $INSTANCES_HOME_DIRECTORY
chown $RUN_AS_USER:$RUN_AS_GROUP $STARTUP_SCRIPT_DIRECTORY/apacheds-$APACHEDS_VERSION-$DEFAULT_INSTANCE_NAME
