Install CouchDB on CentOS 8 - Step by Step Process ?

This article covers CouchDB installation on CentOS Linux System. 

Apache CouchDB is an open-source database management system, developed by Apache Software Foundation. It is a NoSQL document-store database developed in ErLang.

CouchDB uses multiple formats and protocols to store, transfer, and process its data, it uses JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) to store data, JavaScript as its query language using MapReduce, and HTTP for an API.

Unlike a relational database, a CouchDB database does not store data and relationships in tables. Instead, each database is a collection of independent documents. Each document maintains its own data and self-contained schema.

CouchDB software includes a native web interface i.e. Fauxton for administration of CouchDB database server.
