Apache CouchDB README ===================== Details about this Fork -------------------------------- The /etc/rc.d/couchdb script that is created is a bit annoying if $COUCHDB_USER is the same as the current user. It attempts to use su to start/stop CouchDB binary and it prompts for the password at the shell. To fix this, I added another condition to the if statements to make sure the result of `whoami` does not equal the value of $COUCHDB_USER. Aside from edits to this README file, only one file has been changed in forked repo. Installation ------------ For a low-level guide, see: INSTALL For a high-level guide to Unix-like systems, inc. Mac OS X and Ubuntu, see: INSTALL.Unix For a high-level guide to Microsoft Windows, see: INSTALL.Windows Follow the proper instructions to get CouchDB installed on your system. If you're having problems, skip to the next section. Troubleshooting ---------------- For troubleshooting, see: http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Troubleshooting If you're getting a cryptic error message, see: http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Error_messages For general help, see: http://couchdb.apache.org/community/lists.html The mailing lists provide a wealth of support and knowledge for you to tap into.
