Hi, I'm trying to install couchdb using the instructions on your forum (http://forum.webfaction.com/viewtopic.php?pid=12182#p12182).

I'm getting these errors when installing erlang:


*** APPLICATIONS DISABLED ***


jinterface : No Java compiler found



**** APPLICATIONS INFORMATION ***


wx : Can not link the wx driver, wx will NOT be useable


I ignored the error and went ahead with installation. When I got the the couchdb step, it gave me this error: [hewes@web201 couchdb]$ ./configure --prefix=$HOME --with-js-lib=$HOME/lib/ --with-js-include=$HOME/include/smjs --with-erlang=$HOME/lib/erlang/usr/include/ -bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

what does 'ls' in that same directory show?

The problem is that the 'wget' line fails; the file to be downloaded no longer exists. Since the file is not there, there is no 'configure' line to run.

I have updated the WebFaction Community CouchDB Install page with newer instructions that should work. Hope that helps!
