Apache CouchDB README ===================== Building ^^^^^^^^ Developer build instructions are available: BUILDING Follow these instructions if you are building from a repository checkout. If you're unsure what this means, skip to the next section. Installation ^^^^^^^^^^^^ General installation instructions: INSTALL If you're running a Unix-like system, such as Ubuntu or Mac OS X: INSTALL.Unix If you're running Microsoft Windows: INSTALL.Windows Follow the instructions in the proper file and return to this document. Running ^^^^^^^ You can start the CouchDB server by running: sudo -i -u couchdb couchdb This uses the `sudo` command to run the `couchdb` command as the `couchdb` user. When CouchDB starts it should eventually display the following message: Apache CouchDB has started, time to relax. Relax. To check that everything has worked, point your web browser to: http://127.0.0.1:5984/_utils/index.html From here you should run the test suite. Check the appropriate `INSTALL` file for help with running CouchDB as a daemon. Troubleshooting ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ For general troubleshooting: http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Troubleshooting If you're getting a cryptic error message: http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Error_messages The mailing lists also provide a wealth of support and knowledge for you to tap into. Feel free to drop by with your questions or comments. See the official CouchDB website for more information about our community resources. <<<<<<< .mine ======= Note: These instructions assume you have created the `couchdb` user. See the specific system information included below to learn how to reconfigure this. Note: If any of these methods report a failure you can run the `couchdb` command manually to see the error messages it is displaying. The `/usr/local/etc/logrotate.d/couchdb` file is provided as a logrotate configuration that you can use to rotate Apache CouchDB's logs. SysV/BSD-style Systems ++++++++++++++++++++++ Depending on your system the `couchdb` init script will be installed into a direcory called `init.d` (for SysV-style systems) or `rc.d` (for BSD-style systems). These examples use the `[init.d|rc.d]` notation to indicate this. You can control the Apache CouchDB daemon by running: /usr/local/etc/[init.d|rc.d]/couchdb [start|stop|restart|force-reload|status] If you wish to configure how the init script works, such as which user to run Apache CouchDB as, you must edit the `/usr/local/etc/default/couchdb` file as appropriate. If you are running the init script as a non-superuser you need to remove the line with the `COUCHDB_USER` setting. If you wish the Apache CouchDB daemon to run as a system service you need to copy the `/usr/local/etc/[init.d|rc.d]/couchdb` script into your system wide `/etc/[init.d|rc.d]` directory and update your system configuration. You may be able to configure your system using the following command: sudo update-rc.d couchdb defaults Consult your system documentation for more information. Mac OS X ++++++++ You can use the `launchctl` command to control the Apache CouchDB daemon. You can load the launchd configuration by running: sudo launchctl load /usr/local/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.apache.couchdb.plist You can stop the Apache CouchDB daemon by running: sudo launchctl unload /usr/local/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.apache.couchdb.plist You can start Apache CouchDB by running: sudo launchctl start org.apache.couchdb You can restart Apache CouchDB by running: sudo launchctl stop org.apache.couchdb You can change the launchd configuration by running: open /usr/local/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.apache.couchdb.plist If you want the Apache CouchDB daemon to run at startup, copy the `/usr/local/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.apache.couchdb.plist` file to your system `/Library/LaunchDaemons` directory. Windows ~~~~~~~ The Windows build process is very similar to the Erlang build process. Build Tools ^^^^^^^^^^^ To build on Windows, you will need the following installed: * Erlang OTP (>=R12B5) (http://erlang.org/) * ICU (http://icu.sourceforge.net/) * OpenSSL (http://www.openssl.org/) * Mozilla SpiderMonkey (=1.8) (http://www.mozilla.org/js/spidermonkey/) * libcurl (http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/) * Cygwin (http://www.cygwin.com/) * Visual Studio 2008 (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/vstudio/default.aspx) Please note: * When installing Erlang, you must build it from source. The CouchDB build makes use of a number of the Erlang build scripts. * When installing ICU, select the binaries built with Visual Studio 2008. * When installing Cygwin, be sure to select all the `development` tools. * When installing libcurl, be sure to install by hand as the Cygwin binaries are built with an incompatible compiler and will not work with Erlang. Setting Up ^^^^^^^^^^ Before starting any Cygwin terminals, run the following command: set CYGWIN=nontsec To set up your environment, run the following command: [VS_BIN]/vcvars32.bat Replace [VS_BIN] with the path to your Visual Studio `bin` directory. After you have done this, `link.exe` and `cl.exe` should be on your path and correspond to the Microsoft linker and compiler, respectively. To set up your environment, run the following command: eval `./otp_build env_win32` Do this even if you have already built Erlang because the CouchDB build system needs the environment variables set up by this script. To set up your path, run the following command: export PATH=$ERL_TOP/release/win32/erts-5.7.2/bin:$PATH Everything should be set up properly now. Building ^^^^^^^^ We start by bootstrapping: $ cd $COUCHDB_TOP $ ./bootstrap You have bootstrapped Apache CouchDB, time to relax. Run `./configure' to configure the source before you install. $ Relax. Now we need to run a complicated configure command-line. $ ./configure \ --with-js-include=/cygdrive/c/path_to_seamonkey_include \ --with-js-lib=/cygdrive/c/path_to_seamonkey_lib \ --with-win32-icu-binaries=/cygdrive/c/path_to_icu_binaries_root \ --with-erlang=$ERL_TOP/release/win32/usr/include \ --with-win32-curl=/cygdrive/c/path/to/curl/root/directory \ --with-openssl-bin-dir=/cygdrive/c/openssl/bin \ --with-msvc-redist-dir=/cygdrive/c/dir/with/vcredist_platform_executable \ --prefix=$ERL_TOP/release/win32 Relax, then relax some more, then get a beer and relax some more; the above command may take many many minutes to complete... Note that all paths must be in cygwin format (ie, using '/cygdrive/c/dir/...' rather than 'c:/dir'.) Those starting with $ERL_TOP can be entered literally, assuming ERL_TOP is set as described above. Notes: When building the installer, the necessary openssl binaries are pulled from the directory pointed to --with-openssl-bin-dir. Now we can build it and "install" it into the $ERL_TOP/release/win32 (or wherever you set --prefix to above) directory: $ make install Relax on your new couch: The $ERL_TOP/release/win32 directory is now ready to .zip up, be packaged by an installer, etc. To test it in-place, execute: $ $ERL_TOP/release/win32/bin/couchdb.bat and everything should work fine. To create an installer, execute: $ make dist and look for etc/windows/setup-couch*.exe. Note - only do this after a clean build, not after testing in-place - otherwise your test database and log files will be shipped! Notes ^^^^^ Building Erlang +++++++++++++++ * Follow the instructions as described. You do need openssl, but don't need the GUI tools. You can skip them with the following command: echo "skipping gs" > lib/gs/SKIP echo "skipping ic" > lib/ic/SKIP * Ensure `which link` points at the Microsoft linker. If you do not do this, the one in /usr/bin may be found instead. * After executing `./otp_build release -a`, be sure to execute Install.exe in the release/win32 directory to setup the release/win32/bin dir correctly. >>>>>>> .r922524 Cryptographic Software Notice ----------------------------- This distribution includes cryptographic software.
