Run Couchbase Server on Linode: Part 3

Image
In the final post of this series I run Couchbase Server through a simple test, a pillow fight.  This will be short, only showing you how to setup a test bucket, create a test user and then run cbc-pillowfight. Since it's a single node cluster and that node only has two CPUs, the test isn't evaluating performance. It will simply verify the installation.

So we finish with step 6 of these steps

Run Couchbase Server on Linode: Part 1

Linode offers cloud hosting for virtual Linux servers in more than a few spots around the world.  I installed the latest Couchbase Server on a single VM, affectionately called a Linode, to get a feel for the install process and try out the new Couchbase Server 5.0 that introduces role-based access control.

This article, in three parts, walks through the steps to install Couchbase Server 5.0 Enterprise Edition on a Linux VM or Linode running Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. Here are the steps:

Part 2 will cover installing the Couchbase Server. Part 3 will show how to verify the installation. Create a Linode Linodes come in many sizes.  I picked the smallest multi-CPU option, a two CPU instance with 4 GB of RAM. 
From the Linode Manager, press the Add a Linode link. Locate the instance type…
