Description Ajay 2013-06-30 07:24:36 UTC
Description of problem:
  I am using the free version of openshift and recently created a python app using flask and postgres. When I tried adding postgres cartridge to my app, it fails with the following message:

/var/lib/openshift/607bb3a873f442629a88328ea75ef36c/postgresql/bin/install: line 39: HOME: unbound variable

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login via openshift UI
2. Click postgres 'add cartridge'

Actual results:
 postgres did not install, get the message: /var/lib/openshift/607bb3a873f442629a88328ea75ef36c/postgresql/bin/install: line 39: HOME: unbound variable

Expected results:
  postgres cartridge should be installed.

Additional info:
  I had mongodb previously installed, but since I planned on using postgres, I removed mongodb.

Bug 979740 - Fix Postgres cartridge using $HOME


The Postgres cartridge was using $HOME in some places, but it should be using $OPENSHIFT_HOMEDIR.
This is causing an unbound variable error.

Comment 3 Meng Bo 2013-07-11 09:16:53 UTC
Checked on devenv_3482,

Add "unset HOME" to the top of the bin/install script for the postgresql cartridge.
Try to add the postgresql to my app.
It will not report errors.
And the .psqlrc and .pgpass exist under the gear dir.

[pythonws-bmeng.dev.rhcloud.com dc6b15feea0711e2b3c022000a8a0ade]\> ls -a
.  ..  app-root  .env  .gem  git  .gitconfig  mongodb  .pgpass	postgresql  .psqlrc  python  .sandbox  .ssh  .tmp
