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 paulbarrett.
The comment on this change is: Changes to get 0.11 and 1.0 running because things are missing
in make.


  # wget <url>
  tar xvzf apache-couchdb-x.xx.x.tar.gz
  cd apache-couchdb-x.xx.x
+ # see xulrunner directions below and do them this fixes problem where basic test suite fails
to run.
  # Note: To install couchdb in the default location use --prefix= in the configure statement
  ./configure --prefix= --with-js-lib=/usr/lib/xulrunner-devel- --with-js-include=/usr/lib/xulrunner-devel-
  # Now you can compile and install couchdb
  make && make install
  # Add couchdb user account
  useradd -d /var/lib/couchdb couchdb
  chown -R couchdb: /var/lib/couchdb /var/log/couchdb
+ # next two steps fix problems where adding admin hangs or setting admins in local.ini hangs
the start. Also fixes problems with reader_acl test.
+ chown -R root:couchdb /etc/couchdb
+ chmod -R 664 /etc/couchdb
  # start couchdb
  /etc/init.d/couchdb start
  # Start couchdb on system start
