Mac OS X installation
Mac OS 10.7 and 10.8 are supported, but for development purposes only.
Before you install, verify the list of supported platforms.
Mac OS X installation uses a Zip file with a stand-alone application that can be copied to the Applications folder or to any other location you choose. The installation location is not the same as the location of the Couchbase data files.
The following Mac operating systems are supported:
|Platform||Version||32 / 64 bit||Supported|
|Mac OS||10.7||64 bit||Developer only|
|Mac OS||10.8||64 bit||Developer only|
Use Archive Utility, the default archive file handler in Mac OS X, to unpack the Couchbase Server distribution. It is more difficult to diagnose non-functioning or damaged installations after extraction by other third party archive extraction tools.
To perform the installation, follow the steps in Installing on Mac OSX .
