DESCRIPTION

       db.login sets login parameters such an  user  name  and  optionally  also  a  password,  a
       hostname or a port for the connection to the selected database through the DB driver.

NOTE

       Options  host and port are related to only SQL database backends like PostgreSQL, MySQL or
       ODBC.

       Note that the passwords are stored in a hidden, unencrypted  file  in  the  user  account,
       specifically

           ·   in the ’home’ directory, i.e. $HOME/.grass7/dblogin (Unix-like systems)

           ·   %APPDATA%/GRASS7/dblogin (MS-Windows)
       Only the file owner can access this file.

EXAMPLES

       Only username specified (assuming locally accessible PostgreSQL DB without password):
       db.login driver=pg database=mydb

       Username,  password and hostname specified (note that the command lines history will store
       the password in this way):
       db.login driver=pg database=mydb user=bacava password=secret host=db.example.com

       Username and empty password specified:
       db.login driver=pg database=mydb user=bacava password=""
