Subject Installing the latest CouchDB version on Ubuntu
Date Wed, 06 Jan 2010 12:40:35 GMT

there is a nice and easy to follow CouchDB Wiki article on how to install the latest CouchDB
version manually:

I've followed these steps and it seems like no error occurred during the installation.

When first running CouchDB it says that is has started but then the process seems to be stopped.
I have the stop the command (ctrl + z) to get out.
The second start returns an error (see below).

I've tried versions 0.10, 0.10.1 and 0.11 on Ubuntu 9.04 (EC2 instance). For sure there is
Ubuntu 9.10 which come with 0.10 but this is no option at the moment.

Any idea on how to solve this error?

Best regards,

# first start: sudo -i -u couchdb couchdb
