  • Installation with wrong permissions

    Hello,

    I installed VoltDB as in the documentation mentioned (https://docs.voltdb.com/UsingVoltDB/installDist.php): "Note that installing as root using the sudo command makes the installation folders read-only for non-privileged accounts."
    $ sudo tar -zxvf voltdb-ent-6.0.tar.gz -C /opt
    $ cd /opt
    $ sudo mv voltdb-ent-6.0 voltdb
    $
    $ export PATH="$PATH:/opt/voltdb/bin/"

    When I looked at the voltdb directory, the permissions are strange... - here is a output:

    $ ls -ll
    total 12
    drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Oct 14 10:20 jdk
    drwxr-xr-x 10 507 1001 4096 Jan 27 01:02 voltdb
    drwxr-xr-x 11 507 1001 4096 Dec 11 23:57 voltdb_old

    $ echo $PATH
    /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/voltdb/bin

    When I looked into the bin directory, everyone have execute rights.

    What have I done wrong in the installation procedure?

    Thanks.

    Best regards,
    Sabrina

    Sabrina,
    No, you have done anything wrong. Within /opt/ directory, a standard system location, VoltDB recommends installing here for production systems for ease of use. If you're inclined to, you can tune these permissions for the desired result.
