CouchBase Test Running Failed

I installed Couchbase and trying to test its caching. The URL localhost:8091/index.html shows all most everything (stats,server info etc). When I tel net telnet localhost 8091 terminal shows

Trying… Connected to localhost. Escape character is ‘^]’.

Then I tried to get the status with command stats . Also, I tried to set a key-value . Both commands give the same error:

HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request Server: MochiWeb/1.0 (Any of you quaids got a smint?) Date: Fri, 01 Aug 2014 05:28:31 GMT Content-Length: 0

  • Does this sound my installation has any issue or couchbase not running well?
  • Does couchbase heavily depend on hardware specifications ? (it asks for more core servers, more MEMORY).


You’ll need to use port 11211 for telnet, rather than 8091.

As for Couchbase’s hardware requirements, you’ll find that for development it should run on your laptop without issue. For production use, you might find this blog post useful:
