MonetDB problem starting DB

When you get:

$ monetdb start mydatabase
starting database 'mydatabase'... FAILED
start: starting 'mydatabase' failed: database 'mydatabase' appears to shut itself down after starting, check monetdbd's logfile for possible hints

Look into the merovingian.log in the /dbfarmpath/. Try to run the /usr/bin/mserver5 –dbpath=…… line and see the error

1) make sure that /dbfarmpath/databasename/bat/BACKUP path has the correct owner and rights (not reverted back to root) – a quick chown user BACKUP -Rf will fix that
