Subject [jira] Closed: (COUCHDB-302) Permissions problems under Ubuntu
Date Mon, 06 Apr 2009 08:32:12 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-302?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Brian Candler closed COUCHDB-302.
---------------------------------

    Resolution: Fixed

The "1: 0" error was reported separately as COUCHDB-305 and fixed

The pidfile was moved recently to .../var/run/couchdb/ directory (r761355) and the README
updated to indicate that this directory needs to be created with the correct permissions (r761352)

> Couchdb install scripts not setting correct permissions under Ubuntu. First I did a complete
wipe of all couchdb-related files and directories:
> $ sudo rm -rf /usr/local/var/lib/couchdb
> $ sudo rm -rf /usr/local/lib/couchdb /usr/local/share/couchdb /usr/local/var/log/couchdb
/usr/local/var/run/couchdb.pid /usr/local/etc/init.d/couchdb /usr/local/etc/logrotate.d/couchdb
/usr/local/etc/default/couchdb /usr/local/bin/couch{db,js}
> Then after a 'make install':
> $ sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/couchdb start
>  * Starting database server couchdb                                             Apache
CouchDB needs write permission on the PID file: /usr/local/var/run/couchdb.pid
>                                                                          [fail]
> So I created the pidfile by hand:
> $ sudo touch /usr/local/var/run/couchdb.pid
> $ sudo chown couchdb:couchdb /usr/local/var/run/couchdb.pid
> $ sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/couchdb start
>  * Starting database server couchdb                                             /usr/local/bin/couchdb:
1: 0: not found
> /usr/local/bin/couchdb: 1: 0: not found
> /usr/local/bin/couchdb: 1: 0: not found
>                                                                          [ OK ]
> Despite the "not found" errors, couchdb was running. Now:
> $ curl -X PUT http://localhost:5984/db1
> {"error":"error","reason":"eacces"}
> I found that /usr/local/var/lib/couchdb had been recreated with owner 0:0
> It seems to work OK after this:
> $ sudo chown couchdb:couchdb /usr/local/var/lib/couchdb
