CouchDB On DotCloud (ALPHA)

This is an ALPHA (i.e., not production-ready) CouchDB stack for DotCloud.

How It Works

Since the CouchDB build is very long, it downloads a pre-built CouchDB from S3. The build is not totally DotCloud-compliant (it uses all the default build options, instead of trying to setup the logs/data/etc. directories in the proper place).

Again: don't use this for production!

Proper CouchDB support will come soon.

How To Use It (Standalone)

Just use our (un)patented Clone-And-DotCloud-Push method:

git clone git://
dotcloud push sofa couchdb-on-dotcloud-ALPHA

At the end of the push, the URL to CouchDB will be shown. You can append /_utils to go to the Futon management interface.

How To Use It (In Your App)

Add the dotcloud.yml supplied here to your own dotcloud.yml, and copy the couchdb directory to your repository as well. Push as usual. Rejoice (but remember not to put any important stuff into your CouchDB yet).


By default, there is NO authentication. Anyone knowing its URL can acccess your CouchDB. You can setup authentication yourself if you need to. And of course, when CouchDB will be officially supported, authentication will be pre-configured by default, like for other DotCloud-supported database stacks.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
