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.
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.
