Subject Re: Shards database name error in logs
Date Wed, 14 Sep 2016 16:15:18 GMT
I'm pretty sure its saying that you're trying to create a database
named _metadata which isn't a valid database name for two reasons.
First, we require db names to start with a letter for file system
compatibility and to avoid surprises (ie, if someone tried to name a
database "../foo"). Second, we generally reserve the _ prefix in all
API places for CouchDB internal use.
