Subject [Couchdb Wiki] Trivial Update of "Quirks_on_Windows" by DaveCottlehuber
Date Fri, 30 Aug 2013 12:40:53 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:

firewall exceptions

   * run vcredist first to ensure the following binaries don't simply crash
   * set up Erlang using {{{"%COUCHDB%\Install.exe -s"}}}
   * if you need to set up a service, use [[|erlsrv.exe]]
to do so.
+  * if you wish to enable the firewall port, add {{{netsh advfirewall firewall add rule name="Apache
CouchDB" dir=in action=allow service=any enable=yes profile=any localport=5984 protocol=tcp}}}
  === Upgrading ===
  Most recent changes since 0.8 have required a full uninstall and re-install to avoid mixing
Erlang libraries from different versions. Depending on changes in Erlang and CouchDB it may
be that the on-disk format or replication has also changed. You will need to decide how to
handle this on a case-by-case basis. The official CouchDB installer in versions after 1.0.2
will not require a reboot during/after uninstall & reinstall. This is due to killing off
the stray epmd.exe process prior to upgrade/installation.
