Subject Re: How to setup an master - slave enviroment

Master/Slave is a fine setup, why not? :) Just because couchdb can do
multi-master doesn't mean you have to.

To answer the original question, you need to start replication jobs
from your master to your slaves. See for details.

As to why you've configured your proxy to direct requests to your
slaves and also wonder how to stop requests reaching your slaves, I
cannot answer.
