2.6. Installation via Snap

Apache CouchDB provides ‘convenience binary’ Snap builds through the Ubuntu snapcraft repository under the name couchdb. Only snaps built from official stable CouchDB releases (2.0, 2.1, etc.) are available through this channel.

After installing snapd, the CouchDB snap can be installed via:

$ sudo snap install couchdb

CouchDB will be installed at /snap/couchdb. Data will be stored at /var/snap/couchdb/.

Further details on the snap build process are available in our couchdb-pkg git repository.
