Secure CouchDB Admin

by Scott, Revised on March 13, 2011 (Databases)

Futon's default is http://localhost:5984/ for a server running on the local machine.

To securely access a CouchDB on a remote server a SSH tunnel can be used:

ssh -L 5985:localhost:5984 user@example.com

Now I can access the reomote server at http://localhost:5985/.
