Stopping the database server

You can stop the database server by:

  • Clicking Shut Down on the database server messages window.

  • Using the dbstop utility.

    The dbstop utility is useful in batch files, or for stopping a server on another computer. It requires a connection string in its command. See Stop Server utility (dbstop).

  • Letting it shut down automatically by default when the application disconnects.

  • Pressing Q when the database server messages window has the focus on Unix.
