    Question S11.2: couchdb 1.0.1: password required after ymp-installation

    Dear all, I'm new to linux and that forum, so a (possibly) silly question:
    I installed couchdb 1.0.1 w/ ymp (one-click) from http://software.opensuse.org/search?...3A11.2&lang=de
    and when I try to start it like /etc/init.d/couchdb start or sudo -i -u couchdb couchdb I am asked for a pwd, which I never put in. tried several standards or my own already... Didn't find anything in any documentation. Am I doing something wrong here?
    Possibly one of you might know.
    Best regards,...

    You need the root password, which was set when the system was installed

    Hi, thanks, doesn't work out, tried already several time, also after a new installation, seems like the installation has created a user named couchdb and set a pwd:
    copied from bash:
    thl@linux-k36m:~> /etc/init.d/couchdb start
    Starting CouchDBcouchdb's password:
    couchdb's password:
    couchdb's password:
    failed
    ...
    But thanks for the answer!

    So you are talking about a password for the application, not for it's installation.

    I suggest you read the documentation

    i suggest you find a couchdb forum...

    no one should really expect experts or gurus for each of thousands and
    thousands of programs which run on Linux to be in *every* distro's
    forums..

    that is not to say you can't ask here...sure you can...but, you may
    get more guesses here than real answers....hopefully that would be
    reversed on a couchdb forum..

    or might even want to give the couchdb documentation a look see..

    Couchdb should have an 'admin' user, from what I've read.
