Hi Jason! Thanks for the reply. Sadly, the method you described didn't work.
I'm guessing, it has something to do with build/ Since that
file will make couchdb availlable to the PATH.
I haven't had installed any program for source before, so i don't know
how to make it startup scripts

Would you please post the instructions as to how to do it in the
build-couchdb github page? I'm sure for many novice people like me the
instructions will be a great help.

Thank you
