The same process for installing Python modules from source code is also followed for installing the couchbase module. You download the package, unzip it, then build and install it.
Unzip the compressed file and move into the folder.
shell> tar -xf couchbase-python-client-0.6.tar.gz shell> cd couchbase-python-client-0.6
Build and install the module. Build first is recommended to check for any errors or problems, but doing install also builds for you. You will need root/administrator rights to complete the install step.
shell> python setup.py build shell> python setup.py install
