Subject Copying of database fails with bad_otp_release
Date Wed, 28 Nov 2012 18:40:05 GMT

I am working on setting up a Node Package Manager repository which uses CouchDB.  I am having
issues using replication to copy a CouchDB I have configured to a new server.  I believe the
issues are due to filtering rules which are in place that do not allow HTTP PUT operations
over our network so I am trying to just copy the database from one system to another.

I am on Windows systems,  using CouchDB 1.2 R15 the source database exists on a Windows 7
64 system and the destination is a Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit system.  I am using the copy
and paste facility of Remote Desktop to copy the file to the destination system, the file
is small at 200M.  The file I am copying is the <databaseName>.couch file in the CouchDB\var\lib\couchdb
directory.  (Not sure if this matters but I also have RabbitMQ installed on the same server
with the Erlang OTP R15B012 package.)

Once the file has been copied over I see it in the Futon UI but the size, Number of Documents
and Update Seq fields are blank and when I click on the link for the database I receive an
error message as follows:

Error: bad_otp_release

To open the database `npm`, Apache CouchDB must be built with Erlang OTP R13B04 or higher.

If I copy the file to a new file on the source system I see the new database and can access
it as I would expect, any ideas as to why I would be receiving this error and how I can copy
the database to another system?
