[edit] Configuration Files

BaseX maintains some configuration files, which are stored in the project’s Home Directory:

Note that, depending on your OS and configuration, files and folders with a '.' prefix may be hidden.

[edit] Home Directory

As BaseX is distributed in different flavors, and may be started from different locations, it dynamically determines its home directory:

[edit] Database Directory

A database in BaseX consists of several files, which are located in a directory named by the name of the database. If the user’s home directory has been chosen as base directory, the database directories will be planed in a BaseXData directory. Otherwise, the directory will be named data.

The database path can be changed as follows:

Note: Existing databases will not be automatically moved to the new destination.

[edit] User and Log Files

Global users, along with their passwords and permissions, are stored in the .basexperm file in the home directory. Local users and permissions are stored inside the database files. Log files are stored in text format in a sub-directory .logs of the database folder (see Logging for more information).

[edit] Changelog
