Time for action — taking CouchDB out of Admin Party
Having CouchDB unsecure isn't bad when you are programming locally, but it can be catastrophic if you accidentally have an unsecure database on a publicly accessible server. Let's briefly add security now to make sure you know how to do it in the future.
- Open Futon to the Overview, and look at the bottom right corner. You'll see text that says:
Welcome to Admin Party!
Everyone is admin. Fix this.
- Click on the Fix this link.
- A new window will pop up, prompting you Create Server Admin.
- Enter in a username and password that you want to use for your administrator account, and click on Create.
