Subject Re: Help a noob upgrade couchDB from 0.8 to 0.11
Date Mon, 31 May 2010 05:15:20 GMT

Also, from source, couchdb will install by default to /usr/local/couchdb.

If you wish to override the 0.8.0 version and install it at top-level, 
you may need to re-run the source installation steps, using:
./configure --prefix=/ --exec-prefix=/

Remember of course to restart couchdb.
