-Running as a Daemon
--------------------
-
-SysV/BSD-style Systems
-~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
-
-You can use the `couchdb` init script to control the CouchDB daemon.
-
-On SysV-style systems, the init script will be installed into:
-
-    /usr/local/etc/init.d
-
-On BSD-style systems, the init script will be installed into:
-
-    /usr/local/etc/rc.d
-
-We use the `[init.d|rc.d]` notation to refer to both of these
-directories.
-
-You can control the CouchDB daemon by running:
-
-    /usr/local/etc/[init.d|rc.d]/couchdb [start|stop|restart|status]
-
-If you wish to configure how the init script works, you can edit:
-
-    /usr/local/etc/default/couchdb
-
-Comment out the `COUCHDB_USER` setting if you're running as a
-non-superuser.
-
-To start the daemon on boot, copy the init script to:
-
-    /etc/[init.d|rc.d]
-
-You should then configure your system to run the init script
-automatically.
-
-You may be able to run:
-
-    sudo update-rc.d couchdb defaults
-
-If this fails, consult your system documentation for more information.
-
-A `logrotate` configuration is installed into:
-
-    /usr/local/etc/logrotate.d/couchdb
-
-Consult your `logrotate` documentation for more information.
-
-It is critical that the CouchDB logs are rotated so as not to fill
-your disk.
-
-Mac OS X
-~~~~~~~~
-
-You can use the `launchctl` command to control the CouchDB daemon.
-
-You can load the configuration by running:
-
-    sudo launchctl load \
-         /usr/local/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.apache.couchdb.plist
-
-You can stop the CouchDB daemon by running:
-
-    sudo launchctl unload \
-         /usr/local/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.apache.couchdb.plist
-
-You can start CouchDB by running:
-
-    sudo launchctl start org.apache.couchdb
-
-You can restart CouchDB by running:
+    http://127.0.0.1:5984/_utils/
 
-    sudo launchctl stop org.apache.couchdb
+From here you should click "Verify" then "Verify Installation" to
+validate CouchDB is working as expected.
 
-You can edit the launchd configuration by running:
+## Running as a Daemon
 
-    open /usr/local/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.apache.couchdb.plist
+CouchDB no longer ships with any daemonization scripts.
 
-To start the daemon on boot, copy the configuration file to:
+The couchdb team recommends [runit](http://smarden.org/runit/) to
+run CouchDB persistently and reliably. Configuration of runit is
+straightforward; if you have questions, reach out to the CouchDB
+user mailing list.
 
-    /Library/LaunchDaemons
+Naturally, you can configure systemd, launchd or SysV-init daemons to
+launch CouchDB and keep it running using standard configuration files.
 
 Consult your system documentation for more information.
