you’ll be able to run the document based nosql database „couchdb“ (http://couchdb.apache.org/) in just a few minutes on your server if you follow these steps:
# apt-get install couchdb
after successfull installation couchdb is binded by default on 127.0.0.1 (localhost). To access via your IP, you have to change the BindAddress value which is set to 127.0.0.1 in /etc/couchdb/couch.ini:
After restarting couchdb service you should be able to access via browser:
# /etc/init.d/couchdb restart
Now open a browser and browse to http://yourdomain.com:5984/ you’ll see your couchdb running.
