Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Update of "Replication" by AlexeyLoshkarev
Date Tue, 19 Oct 2010 12:52:44 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "Replication" page has been changed by AlexeyLoshkarev.
The comment on this change is: Cancel ordinary replication.


  The target database has to exist and is not implicitly created. Add `create_target:true`
to the JSON object to create the target database (remote or local) prior to replication. The
names of the source and target databases do not have to be the same.
  Specifying a local `source` database and a remote `target` database is called ''push replication''
and a remote `source` and local `target` is called ''pull replication''. As of CouchDB 0.9,
pull replication is a lot more efficient and resistant to errors, and it is suggested that
you use pull replication in most cases, especially if your documents are large or you have
large attachments.
