Subject Re: Unable to restart CouchDB
Date Mon, 22 Jul 2013 03:56:54 GMT
couchdb isn't a service script in the way you're trying to use it.  It is just trying to start
up again and failing because one is already running.

What you probably want is:

sudo launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.apache.couchdb.plist; sudo launchctl load
