[In what category would posts about REST go?]
I can create new documents using REST POST. However, when I try creating a document with REST PUT I get the error “database already exists”. Here are the details of my request:
An equivalent POST works (same URL, none of the query parameters or request headers. etc. – just the same URL and body).
(By the way, there is documentation ambiguity here: it says that If-Match is “required for document updates if the rev query parameter or _rev body property are not supplied.” However, neither would be supplied when creating a new document.)
