Subject RE: FW: CouchDB shared hosting

Yes, I realize that CouchDB is totally different from those examples. That is also the reason
we want to see if we could offer it in our shared hosting environment.

You say that many things aren't for a database to check, but that is the most logical location
to do it if you ask me.

But with these answers we will look into it further and probably start testing it in the near

Thanks for the answers.

That's not DB job, you can do it with proxying http server. (nginx,
lighttpd, varnish)

That's not DB job, you know how to do it, why are you asking? :)

You can write scripts to change proxying http server configs and make
it reload them with commands. In fact, there is no such thing in the
world, that can't be done "with commands, automatically".

You can create/delete databases as simply as curl -X PUT/DELETE

CouchDB can do that. But requirement doesn't make sense.

You realize, that CouchDB is totally different from those, right?
