NAME

basexserver - XML database system and XPath/XQuery processor (server mode)

SYNOPSIS

basexserver [-cdinpSz] [stop]

DESCRIPTION

basexserver starts the server mode of the native XML database system basex(1) on default port 1984.

OPTIONS

A short description of option can be obtained from
    $ basexserver -h
or by browsing http://docs.basex.org/wiki/Command-Line_Options#HTTP_Server

USER MANAGEMENT

On first startup a user 'admin' with default password 'admin' exists (make sure to change this)!
Admin permissions are needed to execute one of the following processes.
Creating user 'test' with password 'test':
   > CREATE USER test test
As global permissions valid options are 'none', 'read', 'write', 'create' and 'admin'.
Revoking all global permissions from user 'test':
   > GRANT none TO test
Valid local permissions are 'none', 'read' and 'write'.
Granting write permission on database 'factbook' to user 'test':
    > GRANT write ON factbook TO test
Note: Local permissions overwrite global permissions. As a consequence, the 'test' user will only be allowed to access (i.e., read and write) the 'factbook' database. If no local permissions are set, the global rights are inherited.
Showing global permissions:
    > SHOW USERS
Showing local permissions on database 'factbook':
   > SHOW USERS ON factbook
Dropping of user 'test':
   > DROP USER test
Further details on user management are to be found in the BaseX Documentation Wiki (http://docs.basex.org/wiki/User_Management).
