Just downloaded Couchbase 2.0.1 for Mac for development use. I launched it once from the downloads folder, but then exited from the menu bar, and moved the app to the Applications folder. After that, I can launch it and it pops up in the menu bar, but it seems the admin web interface is dying. Immediately after launching, I’ll see the welcome to couchbase screen, and I will briefly see beam.smp running on port 8091, but then it dies shortly afterwards.
finally:~ jmartens$ sudo lsof -i :8091
COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME
beam.smp 48483 jmartens 32u IPv4 0xd49a5319d5afc4a5 0t0 TCP *:8091 (LISTEN)
I have never installed any Erlang products that I know of, and this is a new machine for me.
After removing everything in the ~/Library/Application Support/Couchbase/ directory, I was able to run the server successfully. Perhaps running it from a different location previously messed it up? Anyway, it’s working for me now, thanks.
