How To Install Couchbase on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS

Install Couchbase on Ubuntu 22.04

In this tutorial, we will show you how to install Couchbase on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. For those of you who didn’t know, Couchbase is an open-source, distributed NoSQL document database that provides a flexible and scalable architecture. It is designed to store and retrieve large amounts of data with high performance and reliability. Couchbase is an enterprise-level database that is widely used by organizations for web, mobile, and IoT applications.

This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the Couchbase NoSQL database management on Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy Jellyfish). You can follow the same instructions for Ubuntu 22.04 and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint, Elementary OS, Pop!_OS, and more as well.


  • A server running one of the following operating systems: Ubuntu 22.04, 20.04, and any other Debian-based distribution like Linux Mint.
  • It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
  • SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
  • An active internet connection. You’ll need an internet connection to download the necessary packages and dependencies for Couchbase.
  • A non-root sudo user or access to the root user. We recommend acting as a non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.

Install Couchbase on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Jammy Jellyfish

Step 1. First, make sure that all your system packages are up-to-date by running the following apt commands in the terminal.

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade
sudo apt install apt-transport-https ca-certificates software-properties-common

Step 2. Installing Couchbase on Ubuntu 22.04.

By default, Couchbase is not available on Ubuntu 22.04 base repository. Now run the following command below to download the Couchbase package from the official website using wget command and you can choose the appropriate version based on your system architecture:

wget https://packages.couchbase.com/releases/couchbase-release/couchbase-release-1.0-amd64.deb

After the package is downloaded, install it using the following command:

sudo dpkg -i couchbase-release-1.0-amd64.deb

If dpkg reports any errors about missing dependencies, issue the following command to download and install those dependencies from the internet:

sudo apt -f install

After the installation is complete, start the Couchbase service using the following command:

sudo systemctl start couchbase-server
sudo systemctl enable couchbase-server

Step 3. Configure Firewall.

Now we set up an Uncomplicated Firewall (UFW) with Couchbase to allow public access on default web ports 8091:

sudo ufw allow OpenSSH
sudo ufw allow 8091/tcp
sudo ufw enable

Step 4. Accessing Couchbase Web Interface.

Once successfully installed, open your web browser and access the Couchbase Web UI using the URL http://your-IP-address:8091. You will be redirected to the following page:
