A Docker Image for CouchDB
Full Description

CouchDB Dockerfile

A Dockerfile that produces a Docker Image for Apache CouchDB.

CouchDB version

The master branch currently hosts CouchDB 1.6.

Different versions of CouchDB are located at the github repo branches.

Usage

Build the image

To create the image frodenas/couchdb, execute the following command on the docker-couchdb folder:

$ docker build -t frodenas/couchdb .

Run the image

To run the image and bind to host port 5984:

$ docker run -d --name couchdb -p 5984:5984 frodenas/couchdb

The first time you run your container, a new user couchdb with all privileges will be created with a random password.
To get the password, check the logs of the container by running:

docker logs <CONTAINER_ID>

You will see an output like the following:

========================================================================
CouchDB User: "couchdb"
CouchDB Password: "jPp5fBJySeuJPTN8
========================================================================

Credentials

If you want to preset credentials instead of a random generated ones, you can set the following environment variables:

  • COUCHDB_USERNAME to set a specific username
  • COUCHDB_PASSWORD to set a specific password

On this example we will preset our custom username and password:

$ docker run -d \
    --name couchdb \
    -p 5984:5984 \
    -e COUCHDB_USERNAME=myusername \
    -e COUCHDB_PASSWORD=mypassword \
    frodenas/couchdb

Databases

If you want to create a database at container's boot time, you can set the following environment variables:

  • COUCHDB_DBNAME to create a database

On this example we will preset our custom username and password and we will create a database:

$ docker run -d \
    --name couchdb \
    -p 5984:5984 \
    -e COUCHDB_USERNAME=myusername \
    -e COUCHDB_PASSWORD=mypassword \
    -e COUCHDB_DBNAME=mydb \
    frodenas/couchdb

Persistent data

The CouchDB server is configured to store data in the /data directory inside the container. You can map the
container's /data volume to a volume on the host so the data becomes independent of the running container:

$ mkdir -p /tmp/couchdb
$ docker run -d \
    --name couchdb \
    -p 5984:5984 \
    -v /tmp/couchdb:/data \
    frodenas/couchdb
