Single host, single container deployment
The single host, single container deployment is a quick way to try out Couchbase Server on your machine with no installation overhead. You only have to download and run.
For the single host single container scenario, any networking configuration will work. The only real requirement is that port 8091 be exposed so that you can access the Couchbase Web Console.
- Start the container
docker run -d -v ~/couchbase:/opt/couchbase/var -p 8091:8091 couchbase/server
- Verify container start
The docker run command above will return a container ID, for example,
1163fd8df.Use the container ID to view the logs:
$ docker logs 1163fd8df Starting Couchbase Server -- Web UI available at http://<ip>:8091
- Connect to the Couchbase Web Console
From the host, connect your browser to
http://localhost:8091, and you should see the Couchbase Server welcome screen.
For all Setup Wizard screens, leave all values as default and click Next.
After finishing the Setup Wizard, you should see the following screen:
