I have Ubuntu server 10.04 and it comes with its own couchdb version 0.10 I am trying to upgrade this to 1.0.1 or at least install 1.0.1 on the side. No matter what I try, I can't seem to be able to do it. Things I have tried are below:
sudo apt-get install couchdb(installs something, but when I use curl to check on it, it gives me the Welcome JSON with a version number 0.10)
sudo apt-get upgrade couchdb(installs a whole bunch of stuff, same result)
sudo apt-get remove couchdb(somehow still running - also purged. now, I can curl to http://127.0.0.1:5984 and get the welcome JSON, but couchdb is not installed any more i.e. typing in couchdb stop gives me a "not installed" error)
- Installed from the 1.0.1 binary, but after installation, it is not actually running - tested with netstat)
- Tried to change the port number in the local.ini file and tried to restart, but now can't figure out how to restart couchdb1.0.1 or even if it is actually running.
In case I haven't made it abundantly clear, I am completely new to linux. I have some rudimentary experience with .htaccess and configuring Apache and PHP but that's it. If you can help me, I will be very grateful!
