Install Couchbase Server on Linux

      Couchbase Server can be installed and run on several different versions of Linux.

      Supported Linux Platforms

      Couchbase Server can be installed and run on Red Hat, CentOS, Ubuntu, Debian, SUSE Enterprise, Oracle Enterprise, and Amazon Linux.

      The following procedures use Couchbase packages, and require the user who performs the install to have root or sudo privileges:

      Additionally, a non-package-based install can be performed on all the above platforms. Unlike the package-based install, this does not require root or sudo privileges. After the non-package-based install, the same user can stop, start, and get status on the server; and can also perform upgrade.

      The non-package-based procedure is the same for all the above platforms: see Non-Root Install and Upgrade for detailed information.
