Subject Re: Replication through proxy does not work?
Date Sun, 08 Sep 2013 09:09:30 GMT

Doesn't couchdb try to access using the proxy?

I learnt that to access the local DB as admin, it is better to use the user_ctx key, you don't
have to give the password in clear text in the replicator document.
