Subject Re: Couchdb 2.0 installation and couchdb user creation
Date Thu, 06 Oct 2016 14:42:16 GMT
Looks like a documentation bug. Remove the --no-create-home flag
(after a deluser to delete the user) and try again. We previously
installed CouchDB into /var/lib/couchdb but the new guideline is
to run it from /home/couchdb.
