reset couchdb

Hi,

Could you please reset my couch db instance?

li.iriscouch.com - I've been trying vhosts, and even though you deny it from web interface the following command has succeeded:

curl -X PUT http://li.iriscouch.com/_config/vhost... -d '"/cats/_design/app/_rewrite"'

but now I can't access the instance, nor revert:

curl -X DELETE http://li.iriscouch.com/_config/vhost...
{"error":"not_found","reason":"missing handler: _config"}

Apparently, 'vhost_global_handlers' configuration option is missing '_config'.

It really would be nice to be able to set vhosts, so I hope you won't close it, but fix it.

Thank you.

    Hi! Thanks for writing. I am not sure what you mean "deny it from the web interface." Configuring vhosts is fully supported through any mechanism (the Futon web interface, curl, etc.)

    Anyway, what happened is that you successfully set the vhost, but now when you visit "li.iriscouch.com" the vhost is activating and sending you to your Couch app!

    The easiest solution is simply to visit Futon at our alternative domain name: http://li.iriscou.ch/_utils/. You will find that everything is back to normal. (Just don't add a vhost for li.iriscou.ch or you will have to use the super-secret domain, http://li.ic.ht/_utils/)

    Typically, I suggest using port :5984 in your URL instead, i.e. http://li.iriscouch.com:5984/_utils/ however I just discovered a bug which is making that not work. I will correct this bug, but in the meantime, please use the URLs from above and you will be fine.

    Please let me know if you have any more issues or questions. Thanks for your patience!

  • Oh, worked like a charm, thank you a lot, and may be I misunderstood the message when trying to set vhosts through Futon web interface.

    BTW, great support!
