I followed your instructions the apt-get upgrade couchdb
after updating
and starting couchdb I still get Futon on Apache CouchDB    0.10.0 in the lower right corner
when going to

gives back
couchdb welcome version .0.10.0

So what do I try next.
Do I have to restart the computer?

If you are on Ubuntu, you should run:

    apt-get update

Then run:

    apt-get upgrade couchdb

That should upgrade it to the latest version for you.

You should be able to find documentation if you view this file:


Most notably, the Debian package I built that I believe Ubuntu may still mirror 

from, versions the data directories so that a new install of CouchDB will use 

its own database files, instead of overwriting your old ones.

If, however, you want to install from source, then you should check out the 

README files in the tarball you downloaded. Google around for tutorials on how 

to install CouchDB from source on Ubuntu. There are plenty, including the one I 

wrote for the CouchDB book! If you have any specific problems getting a source 

install to run, just post back to the mailing list. I would, however, recommend 

that you try to get a package working for now.
