Signup error is shown after creating an administrator account

    • Dont Know


      A fresh new installation of CouchDB comes with no pre defined admin account. Futon shows a little message and provides a Link to fix this.
      If I try to add an user named as root and give him a password then Futon will show an error after saving this account.

      The admin account will be created and I can log in with the admin account "root". This problem showed up every time I installed CouchDB on my machine.
      On Mac OS I used Homebrew ($ brew install couchdb) to install CouchDB which downloads all the sources, compiles them and install properly. On my Linux machine I've followed the compile instructions from the Wiki page.
