Subject Re: View creation error on specific DB
Date Mon, 21 Jan 2013 16:27:35 GMT
As an update I have tried numerous approaches to attempt to fix/workaround
this problem:

1. Compacting the database.
2. Replicating to a local copy of the DB and retrying view creation.
3. Dumping DB contents to JSON with and loading into another DB

None of these worked.

After downloading the couchdb-python library I added the python view server
to Futon and ran view code in python and this does fix the problem.

So if the problem is with the javascript view server, does this help in
identifying what the issue might be and how I could fix it?


Bad entry in config file,
Corrupt document(s),
Something else??
