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.

HTTP GET favicon.ico





Query args


Request body


Response body

Site icon


Returns the favicon for the site. The favicon is a part of the admin interface, but the handler for it is special as CouchDB tries to make sure that the favicon is cached for one year.
