Subject Re: installing couchdb 1.0.1 will not override .010 ubuntu 10.04 install
Date Sun, 29 Aug 2010 16:50:21 GMT
The error messages are
Apache CouchDB 0.10.0 (LogLevel=info) is starting.
{"init terminating in do_boot",{{badmatch,{error,shutdown}},[{couch_server_sup,start_server,1},{erl_eval,do_apply,5},{erl_eval,exprs,5},{init,start_it,1},{init,start_em,1}]}}
init terminating in do_boot ()

userdan@ubuntu:/opt/couchdb-1.0.1/bin$ couchdb -c

But when installing the 1.0.1 no files were put in the etc directory.
etc/init.d has a couchdb folder with some old stuff in it. I don't know where it came from
but it seems like it's from .010.
This was a fresh ubuntu server install.
And a fresh 1.0.1 install.

What should I try next?

On another note
 before I was on the but I had to reinstall ubuntu and now I can't
get on by typing irc:// into firefox.
How do I get back on this irc chat?

What kind of "junk" is left over? Just the init script? What error message does couch fail
Can you set the log level in the local.ini file to "debug", and provide the output from running
couch manually with that set? 
You may have multiple local.ini files laying around due to the two installs. You can check
to see which config files are loaded with 
   /opt/couchdb_1.0.1/bin/couchdb -c 
And edit the correct one from there
