Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Trivial Update of "Quirks_on_Windows" by DaveCottlehuber
Date Tue, 03 Aug 2010 13:34:19 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "Quirks_on_Windows" page has been changed by DaveCottlehuber.
The comment on this change is: regress python version so that py2exe can be used. provide
a quick start guide using hosted couch rather than install & run your own..
http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Quirks_on_Windows?action=diff&rev1=4&rev2=5

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

  
  == Quick Start ==
  So you just can't wait to relax can you? The fastest route is to:
- * install the tools below excluding CouchDB
- * sign yourself up for the current free no-guarantees [[http://www.couch.io/get|beta cloud
hosting]]
- * wade into [[http://books.couchdb.org/relax/|the Definitive Guide]] and check the quick
start notes on using CouchApp
  
- == Tools ==
+  * unzip [[http://curl.haxx.se/download/curl-7.19.5-win32-ssl-sspi.zip|curl]] and add to
your path
+  * run the latest [[http://github.com/couchapp/couchapp/downloads|couchapp installer]]
+  * sign yourself up for the current free no-guarantees [[http://www.couch.io/get|beta cloud
hosting]] to get your own couch ready to go
+  * read the [[http://github.com/couchapp/couchapp/blob/master/README.md|quick start notes]]
on using [[http://www.couchapp.org/|CouchApp]]
+  * wade into [[http://books.couchdb.org/relax/|the Definitive Guide]]
  
- * For general usage of CouchDB and the essential CouchApp tool, get the following bits installed
& added to your path
- * in each case we list the tool, site, then the version last tested with in case you get
stuck with version creep
- * the 32-bit tools are recommended even on 64-bit platforms for the moment.

- == Building from Source  ==
- Note the full build chain is documented in http://github.com/apache/couchdb/blob/trunk/INSTALL.Windows
-- but again you don't need this for *installing* and *using* CouchDB on Windows.
-  * use only 32-bit components even if you are building on a 64-bit architecture
-  * make sure you have a clean path with your build chain first - watch out for other developer
tools like git, which may have older versions of OpenSSL or ICU binaries in your path
-  * Firefox is the only supported browser for running the Futon test suite - some tests still
fail due to platform differences however
- 
- == Upgrade ==
-  * recommendation is to backup, uninstall, re-install, validate using Futon test suite,
restore data, rather than an in-place upgrade
-  * this ensures you have a cruft-free experience while the windows build & installer
continues to change
  
  == Run ==
   * You can still complete compaction of your couch by stopping CouchDB and deleting/renaming
the appropriate data files - just be careful
