How do I permanently delete a database from desktopcouch/ubuntu one?

Asked by Artis Rozentāls

I created some databases while playing around with desktopcouch and they seem to have replicated to my ubuntu one account. The problem is that every time I delete them locally they are recreated at the next sync. How do I get rid of them permanently? Also, can I exclude some databases from replicating?

You can exclude databases from replicating: look in your desktopcouch for the management database, and find the record that describes the pairing with Ubuntu One (http://localhost:PORT/_utils/database.html?management/_design/ubuntu_one_pair_record/_view/ubuntu_one_pair_record should take you straight to it). If you add a key "excluded_names" to that record, and make its value a JSON list of database names ( [ "db1", "db2", "db3" ] ), those names will not be replicated.

Nice, that will at least prevent further damage, thanks.
