Question

Can't access CouchDB admin page even though DB is available and working for the website

I have a droplet running on 134.209.82.229

However if I try to access the control panel :5984/_utils/ for my running CouchDB it times out always.

I can confirm that:

port 5984 is open with ALLOW EVERYWHERE

and “netstat -an | grep 5984” results in this: tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:5984 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN

I can’t seem to find anyone else with the exact same issue.

Hi there,

I have just tried accessing the CouchDB installation and it seems to be working as expected.

What I could suggest is to make sure that you do not have a local firewall either installed on your laptop on your home network that could be blocking the connections to that port.

Let me know how it goes. Best, Bobby
