Subject How to start couchdb on Mac OS without restarting the machine?
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2012 18:40:05 GMT

I'm following the MacPort section on

It says

"$ sudo launchctl load -w

and it should be up and accessible via Futon at It should also be restarted
automatically after reboot (because of the -w flag)."

I don't know what is Futon here. But I try to access by a browser. It
doesn't appear to work. Is the service not started? I tried the
following command, but I got the following message. Does anybody know
what I am wrong here? Thanks!
