Couchdb cookbook: "templates/default/local.ini" does not exist


I’m admitedly a beginner with chef, but I can’t understand what’s going on right now as I’m trying to use your cookbook to couchdb-db enable my vagrant-based vm instance.

==> default: [2015-12-08T10:42:55+00:00] ERROR: template[/etc/couchdb/local.ini] (couchdb::default line 4) had an error: RuntimeError: File templates/default/local.ini.erb does not exist for cookbook couchdb

The file does exist, however:

; CouchDB Configuration Settings
; Generated and managed by Chef

<% @config.each do |section, parameters| %>
[<%= section %>]
<% parameters.each do |key, value| %>
<%= key %> = <%= value %>
<% end %>

Here’s my configuration:

  • I’m using chef solo 12.5.1
  • It is using in vagrant in the provisioning phase on a local vmware instance
  • I’m using Mac OS X
  • The target OS is ubuntu 14.04

What am I doing wrong?
