Getting started with CouchDB and VMware Appliance.

== Quickstart ==

  * [http://s3.amazonaws.com/vmware_appliances/Jeos%20Elastic%20Drive%20and%20CouchDB-0.7.3a.rar
Download the appliance]. Size of the file is around 250Mb.
  * Unpack it into proper directory (On my Windows workstation I have ''C:\Virtual Machines''
directory).
  * In VMware Player use ''Commands > Open''.
  * In VMware Server use ''File > Open > Browse'' and select your unpacked image
  * In terminal use username ''khaz'' and password ''khaz''. For elevated privileges use ''sudo
command''.
  * At this point you should have all ready to go. To verify that service is running, you
can run command inside terminal session ''wget http://localhost:5984/''. It should return
document that looks like:
  {{{
{"couchdb": "Welcome", "version": "0.7.3a"}
}}}

== Detailed Description ==

This appliance release has with CouchDB version 0.7.3a (rev. 649). It runs as a service under
Ubuntu 7.10 Jeos and has a bonus addon - free version of Elastic Drive, that helps to establish
persistence to remote storage services like Amazon S3 or Nirvanix, thus preserving the data
that is stored in your CouchDB.

  * [http://s3.amazonaws.com/vmware_appliances/Jeos%20Elastic%20Drive%20and%20CouchDB-0.7.3a.rar
Download the appliance]. Size of the file is around 250Mb.
  * Unpack it into proper directory (On my Windows workstation I have ''C:\Virtual Machines''
directory). You need to have some utility to decompress an archive, I use trial version of
[http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm WinRAR]. Same utility had limitations on zip archive size,
so this is why you have .rar
  * In VMware Player use ''Commands > Open''.
  * In VMware Server use ''File > Open > Browse'' and select your unpacked image.
  * In terminal use username  ''khaz'' and password ''khaz''. For elevated privileges use
''sudo command''.
  * At this point you should have all ready to go. To verify that service is running, you
can run command inside terminal session ''wget http://localhost:5984/''. It should return
document that looks like:
  {{{
{"couchdb": "Welcome", "version": "0.7.3a"}
}}}
  If you are running Server Edition, and bridged Ethernet connection (so it uses external
DHCP to obtain IP address), you can run ifconfig inside terminal session and see what IP address
is assigned to this virtual instance. At this point it is easy to open new browser window
and type in something like http://192.168.1111:5984/. If you see the response like above it
means all works as expected.
