Subject how to change couchdb data dir?
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2008 06:54:23 GMT
I want to keep my data on a separate partition from the OS. I was 
wondering what ways there are and what you would recommend in terms of 
doing that?

Options I can think of:

1. configure couchdb with certain options (./configue --help shows 
datarootdir and datadir options, but it says they're read-only). I'm a 
bit lost with this option.

2. symlink the data dir. Seems straightforward, are there any pitfalls?

3. Is it possible to configure a per-database data dir, so I can keep my 
app code and data in one place for each app that I have?

Which way would you recommend?
