MongoDB bug - permissions not set

The package mongodb-bin 4.4.3-1 doesn't set the permissions to /var/lib/mongodb so that the new mongodb user can access it. This causes the service to fail.

To fix run:
    chown -R mongodb:mongodb /var/lib/mongodb

Also there are no error logs available in systemctl and the service is disabled by default, but I guess these are a different topic.

Of course it is. This is Arch, not Ubuntu.


No, it didn't "fix" anything. It just shifted the brokeness one space to the right. - jasonwryan

Re: MongoDB bug - permissions not set

The permissions change is done by systemd-tmpfiles: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/ … ?h=mongodb
Where it logs is up to upstream, and the service being disabled by default is normal on Arch.
