Yet Another Dockerized CouchDB.
Put the couch in a docker container and ship it anywhere.

If you're looking for a CouchDB with SSL support you can check out klaemo/couchdb-ssl

Version: CouchDB 1.6.1


Available in the docker index as klaemo/couchdb

[sudo] docker pull klaemo/couchdb:latest

# expose it to the world on port 5984
[sudo] docker run -d -p 5984:5984 --name couchdb klaemo/couchdb

curl http://localhost:5984


  • built on top of the solid and small debian:wheezy base image
  • exposes CouchDB on port 5984 of the container
  • runs everything as user couchdb (security ftw!)
  • docker volumes for data and logs

The previous version of this image used to come with a process manager to keep
CouchDB running. As of Docker 1.2 you can use the --restart flag to accomplish this.

Build your own

You can use klaemo/couchdb as the base image for your own couchdb instance.
You might want to provide your own version of the following files:

  • local.ini for CouchDB

Example Dockerfile:

FROM klaemo/couchdb

COPY local.ini /usr/local/etc/couchdb/

and then build and run

[sudo] docker build -t you/awesome-couchdb .
[sudo] docker run -d -p 5984:5984 -v ~/couchdb:/usr/local/var/lib/couchdb you/awesome-couchdb
