Subject [jira] Commented: (COUCHDB-720) Pull replication fails due to "401 Authentication required" while push replication works fine
Date Mon, 05 Jul 2010 13:44:50 GMT


Jochen Kempf commented on COUCHDB-720:

Here are the details of my system configuration in order to help you reproduce the issue:

- Remote Machine: Ubuntu 10.04 Server, Nginx Webserver with SSL (self signed certificate and
applying this configuration:, CouchDB 0.11,
CouchDB Lucene -0.6.0, CouchDB Authentication is disabled by setting the null authentication

- Local Machine: Ubuntu 9.10, CouchDB 0.11

Databases to be replicated must have at least one design document to trigger the issue. I
would recommend to trigger a pull replication on the local machine with the remote DB having
the design document and the local machine not. Then the replication process should freeze
once the desing document on the remote machine is hit.

I used the full url syntax for replication (both in Futon and console): {"target": "http://user:password@localhost:5984/db",
"source": "http://user:password@remote/db"} - thus the remote machine directly redirects to
the 5984 port without need to specify it.

I hope you can reproduce and fix that issue before the 1.0 release as I really cannot use
CouchDB in my application due to that issue.

Thanks for your help!
