Creating a new cluster
Clusters are created by setting up a cluster with an initial Couchbase server node.
Whether you are adding a node to an existing cluster or starting a new cluster, the node’s disk path must be configured. Your next steps depends on whether you create a new cluster or add a node to an existing cluster. If you create a new cluster, secure it by providing an administrative username and password. If you add a node to an existing cluster, obtain the URI and credentials to use the REST API with that cluster.
- Initialize the node
- Rename the node
- Establish the administrator name and password
- Setup bucket parameters
