> If a 'push' replication receives error responses from the remote server while PUTting
documents, it may write a corrupt checkpoint document to the remote server -- its _revisions._ids
property is null. Any subsequent attempt to push to that server will cause the replicator
to abort with an error when reading that replication document, since it requires _revisions.ids
to be an array.
> The only workaround for this, short of deleting the remote database entirely, is to (a)
identify the URL of the remote checkpoint document, and (b) delete it from the remote server.
Otherwise you will never be able to push to that database again.
> Here's a failed replication attempt:
> $ curl -X POST --user snej :5984/_replicate --header Content-Type:application/json --data
'{"source":"demo-shopping-attachments","target":"http://localhost:4984/demo-shopping-attachments","create_target":true}'
> {"error":"doc_validation","reason":"_revisions.ids isn't a array."}
> Here's the contents of the remote checkpoint document, once I identified its ID:
> $ curl :4984/demo-shopping-attachments/_local/5b913befe682d7bd1fbc24b1ce31cbc5
> {"_id":"_local/5b913befe682d7bd1fbc24b1ce31cbc5","_rev":"0-1","_revisions":{"ids":null,"start":0},"history":[{"doc_write_failures":2,"docs_read":2,"docs_written":0,"end_last_seq":207,"end_time":"Sun,
21 Oct 2012 19:40:04 GMT","missing_checked":17,"missing_found":2,"recorded_seq":207,"session_id":"9a24dc37885b5b4e507ea90702b2fecf","start_last_seq":0,"start_time":"Sun,
