Can you try the following workaround to see if it solves your issue? You will need to add a line to the
/opt/bitnami/couchdb/scripts/ctl.sh file to create the pid file:
if [ $ERROR -eq 0 ]; then
echo "$0 $ARG: couchdb started at port 5984"
+ echo $PID > /opt/bitnami/couchdb/var/run/couchdb/couchdb.pid
Then, restart the services:
sudo /opt/bitnami/ctlscript.sh restart
Please let us know if this quick fix works for you.
