Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Couchdb Wiki" for change notification.

The "Installing_on_Ubuntu" page has been changed by Linicks.
http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Installing_on_Ubuntu?action=diff&rev1=15&rev2=16

--------------------------------------------------

- CouchDB has an Ubuntu package for Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) and 9.04 (Jaunty Jackalope)
- just do:
+ == Batteries Included ==
+ Newer versions of Ubuntu have CouchDB  included in their respective software repositories.
 You can install CouchDB with the '''Synaptic GUI''', or from the command line with the '''apt'''
or '''aptitude''' utilities, which ever you prefer.  However, to get the newest version of
CouchDB you may have to install from source, or other package repositories that have newer
pre-built CouchDB packages.
+ 
+ Example 1:
  
  {{{
- aptitude install couchdb
+ sudo aptitude install couchdb
  }}}
- == From Source ==
+ == Installing From Source ==
- If you want the latest version of Couchdb but everything else from the repositories then:
+ This is a basic outline of the steps required to build CouchDB from source on Ubuntu.  Like
many things, there are multiple ways to achieve the same task. With that in mind, these steps
may or may not be the best method for you.
  
+  * Install CouchDBs first set of dependencies: sudo apt-get build-dep couchdb
-  * In Synaptic select couchdb, this will also select the dependencies (erlang etc.) then
unselect couchdb and apply the dependencies
-  * sudo apt-get build-dep couchdb
-  * sudo apt-get install libmozjs-dev libicu-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libtool
+  * Install CouchDBs second set of dependencies: sudo apt-get install libmozjs-dev libicu-dev
libcurl4-gnutls-dev libtool
-  * download the latest couchdb .tar.gz file
-  * tar -zxvf apache-couchdb-0.9.0.tar.gz
-  * cd apache-couchdb-0.9.0
-  * ./configure
-  * make
-  * sudo make install
+  '''(*NOTICE*: In Ubuntu 10.04, libmozjs-dev is no longer available.  You should use xulrunner-dev
instead)'''
+  * Then download the latest CouchDB source file.  The wget utility is a useful utility for
this. For example: wget http://mirrors.axint.net/apache/couchdb/0.11.0/apache-couchdb-0.11.0.tar.gz
+  * Untar (decompress) the source file: tar -zxvf apache-couchdb-*.*.*.tar.gz
+  * Change into the expanded directory: cd apache-couchdb-*.*.*
+  * Configure the build: ./configure (You may need to specify build options like the installation
directory, etc.  Please reference the example(s) below.)
+  * Build or Compile the source: make  (You shouldn't have any errors when this process is
done.  If you do you should fix them before moving to the next step.)
+  * Install your newly built CouchDB: sudo make install
+  * Once the installation completes successfully, you will need to make sure that there is
a CouchDB user, and that the CouchDB user owns the necessary files and directories.
+  * Now you can run CouchDB manually by changing into the /bin folder of the installed directory,
and running the following command: "sudo -u couchdb ./couchdb "
+  * Once the server is running you can browse to http://localhost:5984/_utils.  This should
take you to the Futon Web GUI.
+  * To be thorough, you should run the built in tests to ensure that CouchDB is working properly.
 To run the tests, click on the "Test Suite" link on the right hand side of the Futon Web
GUI, then click on "Run All" to execute all of the built in tests.  All of tests should run
without error on Ubuntu.
+  * Once CoucDB is working properly you can add CouchDB to your startup scripts if desired.
  
+ Note: If you installed all the dependencies of Couchdb from synaptic, but not Couchdb itself,
some of the dependencies may think they are not required and the update manager may suggest
that they are removed. Should you remove these dependencies, CouchDB may fail to start, perhaps
with an error such as:
- now you can run "sudo couchdb" and browse to http://localhost:5984/_utils to check it is
all working
- 
- Because you installed all the dependencies of Couchdb from synaptic, but not Couchdb itself
some of the dependencies may think they are not required and update manager may suggest that
they are removed. Should you do this Couchdb will fail to start, perhaps with an error such
as
