We have a new wiki. The migration is not 100% complete. You can help out by moving pages across. This wiki will exist for as long as there are pages left.

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.

The Nix package manager can be used on most operating systems. It allows you to easily install and manage applications separately from your operating system software. http://nixos.org/nix/docs.html describes how to install and use nix. Once installed you can install couchdb with the following command:

nix-env -i couchdb
