NAME

gbrowse_metadb_config - Initializes an empty GBrowse user accounts and uploads metadata database

SYNOPSIS

gbrowse_metadb_config [-dns password -admin user:pass] dns Provide a custom DBI connection string, overriding what is set in Gbrowse.conf. Note that if there are semicolons in the string (like most MySQL connection DSNs will), you WILL have to escape it with quotes. [-admin user:pass] Provide an administrator username and password (in the form user:pass) to skip the prompts if the database does not exist.

DESCRIPTION

Initializes an empty GBrowse user accounts and uploads metadata database. Currently mysql and SQLite databases are supported. When creating a mysql database you must provide the -admin option to specify a user and password that has database create privileges on the server.
