How to start the database server

The way you start the database server varies slightly depending on the operating system you use. As well, you can specify commands in several ways, depending on your operating system:

  • Run the command at a command prompt.

  • Place the command in a shortcut or desktop icon.

  • Run the command in a batch file.

  • Include the command as a StartLine (START) connection parameter in a connection string.

There are slight variations in how you specify the basic command from platform to platform.

  • Except where otherwise noted, these commands start the network server (dbsrv16). To start a personal server, replace dbsrv16 with dbeng16.

  • If the database file is in the starting directory for the command, you do not need to specify path.

  • If you do not specify a file extension in database-file, the extension .db is assumed.
