Subject Re: Replication error using basic authentication on nginx
Date Wed, 11 Aug 2010 10:49:00 GMT

From the gist I see that you have enabled basic authentication inside nginx. Why so? Try do
disable it and only use the CouchDB authentication.

In the "http response of replication" the 401 is from nginx not CouchDB. So maybe it gets
mixed up somewhere...
