Subject [jira] Resolved: (COUCHDB-44) CouchDB should use a VERSION file in the database directory
Date Mon, 29 Jun 2009 04:14:47 GMT


Paul Joseph Davis resolved COUCHDB-44.

       Resolution: Duplicate
    Fix Version/s: 0.10
         Assignee: Paul Joseph Davis

Marking this as duplicate and adding a comment to COUCHDB-67. Once we go to directory style
databases a VERSION file would be simple if we even decide to got that route. This ticket
is quite old so it doesn't take into account the code that's been written to seamlessly updates
databse versions via compaction. Also, we can't go with a single VERSION file per node because
we can technically have multiple DB file versions per server.

> Packaging CouchDB for Debian would be a lot easier if CouchDB used a VERSION file (or
similar) in the database directory to indicate which database format was in use. With this
in place automated installation scripts could warn, error or perform upgrades when a conflicting
version was about to be installed.
