    Revert some changes for clustering
    Port 5986 does not need to be exposed, can be accessed in other ways
    as described in the README.
    Port range for inet_dist_listen must be one port per erlang node.
    Since Docker runs a single VM per container, a single value here is

 Note that you can also use the NODENAME environment variable to set the name of the CouchDB
node inside the container.
 Once running, you can visit the new admin interface at `http://dockerhost:5984/_utils/`
+Note also that port 5986 is not exposed, as this can present *significant* security risks.
We recommend either connecting to the node directly to access this port, via `docker exec
-it <instance> /bin/bash` and accessing port 5986, or use of `--expose 5986` when launching
the container, but **ONLY** if you do not expose this port publicly.
