To ease upgrade process from one version of CouchDBX to another one, it would be great it couchdb databases could be store outside CouchDBX


Just go to 'configuration' in the tools (right hand side) of Futon, then change the 'database_dir' setting. I have it set to '/Users/myname/Document/CouchDB'. If you already have DBs setup you will need to copy all the .couch files to the new location.


Ok, thanks !


There's a standard location for such things. Might be good to make use of this:

~/Library/Application Support/CouchDBX for example.
