Changing Couchbase Data Directory Location

Usually Couchbase put its data on default location (/opt/couchbase/var/lib/couchbase/data). But because my disk’s space is full, i have to move Couchbase data to other location. In my case, /data folder which is mounted to an empty 100GB SSD disk. Below is how i change it,

First, i have to change the content of below file,

vi /opt/couchbase/etc/couchdb/default.d/capi.ini 

Changing database_dir and view_index_dir on below Couchbase configuration file, to my new location folder

max_dbs_open = 10000
database_dir = /data
view_index_dir = /data

db_frontend = capi_frontend
ip4_bind_address =
ip6_bind_address = ::
port = 8092

Next is move the content of old folder (/opt/couchbase/var/lib/couchbase/data), to our new folder (/data). And restart our Couchbase service to implement our changes.

  sudo service couchbase-server stop
  sudo service couchbase-server start

We can see the result on our Couchbase web console, hopefully it helps (H)

ps. My Couchbase version is “Enterprise Edition 6.0.0 build 1693”.
