Subject Re: Update to 1.2.1 on Windows > couch not available any more
Date Mon, 01 Apr 2013 19:32:25 GMT
Hi Alex,

It sounds like you installed couch over the top of the existing
installation? This won't work, a number of libraries will be left with
alternative / incompatible versions.

- stop the service & ensure there are no erl, werl, couchjs, or epmd
processes running
- move or copy your %COUCH%/var/lib/ and %COUCH%/etc/local.ini elsewhere
- uninstall couch
- make sure %COUCH% is completely gone
- reinstall 1.2.1

Usual caveat about having a backup applies.
