EXLOAD - Creating the example database


By using the exload program the example database can be created or removed. (The example database can also be removed by dropping the MIMER_STORE ident using any SQL command tool).

When the example database is installed default values are provided for passwords on idents and for databank file names. These default values can be changed by using the ALTER command after the installation is completed or by explicitly give names as command line arguments to the exload command, see the exload syntax below.

Syntax

The exload syntax (expressed in short form Unix-style) is as follows:

 usage:exload [-s|-m] [-f|-r] [-p SYSADM-password] [database]
 
        -s, --single         Single-user mode database access
        -m, --multi          Multi-user mode database access
        -f, --force          Forced install (overwrites existing environment)
        -r, --remove         Remove the example environment
        -p passw, --password=passw
                             Password for SYSADM
        database   Name of database to access
 
        When creating the example database it is possible to change the default
        values for passwords and filenames. This is done by adding parameters
        after the 'database' parameter (that must be given in this case).
        These optional parameters must be added in the following order:
 
        [MIMER_STORE-password
        [MIMER_ADM-password
        [MIMER_USR-password
        [MIMER_WEB-password
        [MIMER_STORE-databank-filename
        [MIMER_ORDERS-databank-filename
        [MIMER_BLOBS-databank-filename]]]]]]]
 

All parameters to exload are optional.
