Subject Re: Replication through proxy does not work?
Date Sat, 07 Sep 2013 19:44:08 GMT
I am using 'squid' on Ubuntu…  So, I suppose it's mis-configured access list.

I am new to the proxy world. Does CouchDB replication through proxy require certain configuration
on squid or any proxy server?

Replicating through a proxy should be working just fine, more likely
it's a problem with the proxy itself. What are you using?

Hey guys,

I've been trying to replicate certain database from external source to local destination using
proxy, and it keeps failing with the following error message.

{"error":"db_not_found","reason":"could not open [EXTERNAL SOURCE COUCHDB]"}

It works fine, though, if I remove "proxy" key.


I am making a POST request to 'http://localhost:5984/_replicate' with the following JSON data.

    "source":[EXTERNAL SOURCE],
    "doc_ids":["id1", "id2"],
    "proxy":[PROXY ADDRESS:PORT]

Is there known bug for replicating via proxy? Or can it be a configuration issue on my proxy

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you!
