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


       basexserver [-cdinpSz] [stop]


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


       A short description of option can be obtained from

           $ basexserver -h

       or by browsing


       On first startup a user 'admin' with default password 'admin' exists (make sure to  change

       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

       at  the University of Konstanz in 2005 and soon turned into a feature-rich open source XML
       database and XPath/XQuery processor.
