Step 2. Installing Couchbase on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.
Now we download the Couchbase Server Debian package. If the Ubuntu 18.04 version is still not available the 16.04 version will do just well:
### COUCHBASE SERVER COMMUNITY EDITION ### wget https://packages.couchbase.com/releases/5.0.1/couchbase-server-community_5.0.1-ubuntu16.04_amd64.deb ### COUCHBASE SERVER ENTERPRISE EDITION ### wget https://packages.couchbase.com/releases/5.0.1/couchbase-server-enterprise_5.0.1-ubuntu16.04_amd64.deb
Next, install the previously downloaded Couchbase Server DEB package:
sudo gdebi couchbase-server-enterprise_5.0.1-ubuntu16.04_amd64.deb
After installation your Couchbase server should be up and running:
service couchbase-server status
Step 3. Configure Firewall Rules of Couchbase.
Use the below command to allow incoming TCP ports on the UFW firewall as required by Couchbase Server:
sudo ufw allow from any to any port 369,8091:8094,9100:9105,9998,9999,11209:11211,11214,11215,18091:18093,21100:21299 proto tcp
Step 4. Accessing Couchbase.
Couchbase will be available on HTTP port 80 by default. Open your favorite browser and navigate to
http://your-server-ip:8091 and complete the required steps to finish the installation.
