CouchDB installation on OS X

January 8, 2009 § Leave a comment

Here’s a quick tutorial on how to install CouchDB on OS X Leopard:

Prerequisites:

  • Make sure you have darwinport installed because that’s how I install mine.
  • Make sure you have installed easy_install for Python.

Steps:

  • Install Erlang: ‘sudo port install erlang
  • Install CouchDB: ‘sudo port install couchdb +server
  • Launch CouchDB: ‘sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.CouchDB.plist
  • Install couchdb-python: ‘easy_install couchdb

See if CouchDB is running:

Note:

  • The most recent CouchDB in darwinport is 0.72. In this version, I’m having problem with creating an ad-hoc View. Reading some posts online, it seems that this problem is solved in version 0.8.
