    Description

      The section "non-root, non-sudo installation" should just be titled "command-line installation", and references to root/sudo should be dropped.

          Chris Hillery Is there even a mv or cp command argument that is equivalent to dragging and dropping an app into the Applications folder? Every method I try results in Couchbase failing to open.

          Me no habla MacOS, I'm afraid, so I don't know... Kim Trang, do you know if there a scriptable way to install Server on MacOS? I wonder what testrunner does?

          Also, Eric Schneider, has anyone come to you about the changes in Mad-Hatter? We'll be shipping a .dmg on MacOS now rather than a plain .zip ...

          Chris HilleryYes, there's DOC-5203. I assume it's just a very minor update to to the instructions and there isn't anything majorly different. Still drag and drop right?

          You have to "mount" the .dmg somehow and then drag-and-drop from there. I do know that there's a little picture showing you what to do know. Eben Haber would probably be the best source of canonical information about that.

          Chris Hillery Eben Haber Yeah, that's the extent of what I know as well. If it's nothing more than that, then we're good.

          I think what I'd like to be able to do is confirm whether or not installing via command line is possible, in the rare case someone is using their mac via SSH. Kim Trang are you able to confirm? Also, does Couchbase Server on Mac required to be run by an administrator account? Or can any Mac user install and run Couchbase Server?

          Eric Schneider Confirmed with QE 's folks Mihir Kamdar that we can run install from command line, this is only for zip:

          open couchbase-server-enterprise_6.5.0-3475-macos_x86_64.zip
          mv couchbase-server-enterprise_6.5.0/Couchbase\ Server.app /Applications/
          mv couchbase-server-enterprise_6.5.0/Couchbase\ Server.app /Applications/
          sudo xattr -d -r com.apple.quarantine /Applications/Couchbase\ Server.app
          open /Applications/Couchbase\ Server.app

          I haven't tried with dmg, can you give it a try?

          Kim Trang Mihir Kamdar I've tried this procedure with the dmg, replacing mv with cp -R, and I get an error when I try to open the Couchbase Server.app.
