Subject Couch DB on Windows
Date Mon, 14 Sep 2009 00:43:27 GMT

That is my first time here, and would like to know if there is a specific
Windows users forum.

Anyway I'm having troubles following the Windows installation instructions.

Following the instructions in this page:

That is what I have done:

Downloaded the binaries and installed in the following order:

   1. Erlang/OTP (otp_win32_R13B01.exe)
   2. Visual C++ 2008 Redistributables (vcredist_x86.exe)
   3. OpenSSL (Win32OpenSSL_Light-0_9_8k.exe)
   4. CouchDB (couchdb-0.8.1-win32.exe)

Then load a console into the erland folder, and get this:

Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

Eshell V5.7.2  (abort with ^G)
1> couch_server:start().
Couldn't find server configuration file couch.ini.
** exception throw:

     in function  couch_server_sup:start_server/1

After that Still following the instructions, I have copied the file:




And get this:

2> couch_server:start().
Apache CouchDB 0.0.0 (LogLevel=info)
Apache CouchDB is starting.

** exception exit: "The specified module could not be found."
     in function  couch_util:start_driver/1
     in call from couch_server_sup:start_server/1

I have found the instructions a bit out of date I guess...

What should I do now?
