How to start with N1QL with Couchbase 3


#1

Hi,

I’m trying to experience N1QL. I’ve read documentation, but I just can’t get started.

I’m on Mac OS with the latest Couchbase 3.

Whenever I try to connect to http://127.0.0.1:8093, I get connection refused.

How do I even connect?

I do not have experience with N1QL. However i just found this thread which might be helpful?

@moon0326,

Did you install N1QL as stand-alone? If not, you’re going to need to use Couchbase 4.x as the query service is integrated in it:

Best,

Thank you poochie89. I will look into it.

@nraboy Is there a way to test N1QL in Couchbase 3.x? I already have all my test data in my Couchbase 3.

I’ve also tested out Couchbase 4, but then I had the same issue. Port 8093 was not available.

Hey @moon0326,

With Couchbase 4 installed you can execute the following from the Terminal:

/Applications/Couchbase\ Server.app/Contents/Resources/couchbase-core/bin/cbq

That will connect you to the running server and allow you to run queries.

As of right now you can only use N1QL with 4.x. For instructions on upgrading a node, you might want to check this:

Best,

When you get N1QL installed you can use this tool, community build, to live test some queries and get to know the query syntax.
