I just downloaded cassandra 0.7rc1. I started it using bin/cassandra without making any configuration changes.
I then tried to connect using the CLI with command like this:
Welcome to cassandra CLI.
Type 'help' or '?' for help. Type 'quit' or 'exit' to quit.
[default@unknown] connect localhost/9160;
Exception connecting to localhost/9160. Reason: Connection refused.
Why am I getting connection refused? I didn't experience this with cassandra 0.6.8.
Thank you in advance for your help.
