Subject [jira] Created: (COUCHDB-256) Replicating from a write-protected server fails
Date Sun, 15 Feb 2009 22:10:59 GMT
Replicating from a write-protected server fails

                 Key: COUCHDB-256
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Database Core
         Environment: SVN r743373 (2/11/09); Mac OS X 10.5.6; current DarwinPorts versions
of dependencies.
            Reporter: Jens Alfke

I attempted to follow the example in jchris's "My Couch Of Yours?" post (,
pulling a copy of his Twitter client CouchApp from his server. Unfortunately the replication
fails. In his reply to my mailing list post, Jan said "At the moment, replication does not
fully work with authentication-enabled replication sources. But this is being worked on [...]
I don't think we have an open JIRA ticket for this." So I'm filing a ticket for it.

The Replicator in the Futon interface doesn't show any errors, it just never stops the spinny
progress indicator. But this immediately gets dumped to the log file:

[Sun, 15 Feb 2009 03:58:57 GMT] [error] [emulator] Error in process <0.214.0> with exit
value: {{nocatch,{unauthorized,<<39 bytes>>}},[{couch_db,validate_doc_update,3},{couch_db,'-update_docs/4-lc$^1/1-8-',2},{lists,zipwith,3},{couch_db,update_docs,4},{couch_rep,save_docs_buffer,3}]}

[Sun, 15 Feb 2009 03:58:57 GMT] [error] [<0.49.0>] {error_report,<0.22.0>,
                     <<"You are not a server or database admin.">>}},
