Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-128) couchdb is not starting properly from init.d script in trunk
Date Sat, 07 Feb 2009 10:17:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-128?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12671440#action_12671440

Patrick Antivackis commented on COUCHDB-128:
--------------------------------------------

On my side there are two things that should be changed in this file

1) change the first line
#!/bin/sh -e
by
#!/bin/sh
in fact, i tested Linux Fedora, CentOs and Linux Mandriva and all not succeed to start with
the -e flag.

If i do  with the original init script :
/opt/couchdb/etc/rc.d/couchdb start
Nothing is started

if i do with the original script :
/bin/sh /opt/couchdb/etc/rc.d/couchdb start
I get a :
Starting database server couchdb
And couch is indeed started.

If i edit the init script and remove the -e flag and launch
/opt/couchdb/etc/rc.d/couchdb start
I get a :
Starting database server couchdb
And couch is indeed started.

I look in all the scripts in /etc/init.d and none have the -e flag

2) it should be necesssary to add 
COUCHDB_USER=couchdb
in the init script to reflect the security consideration in the README file in order to not
start couch as a root user

Regards
