The official documentation has moved to http://docs.couchdb.org — The transition is not 100% complete, but http://docs.couchdb.org should be seen as having the latest info. In some cases, the wiki still has some more or older info on certain topics inside CouchDB.

You need to be added to the ContributorsGroup to edit the wiki. But don't worry! Just email any Mailing List or grab us on IRC and let us know your user name.

To change the default request page, edit your local.ini file adding a section like:

[httpd_global_handlers]
/ = {couch_httpd, send_redirect, "/blogdb/_design/sofa/_list/index/recent-posts?descending=true&limit=5"}

When you goto http://127.0.0.1:5984/ instead of the usual version information, it will redirect to the page you specified.


For more advanced modifications to url handling see power http handling.
