console mode from which all [[Commands|database commands]] can be executed.The article on the [[Database Server]] provides numerous examples for running commands in the console mode( note that the GUI does ''not'' interact with the client/server architecture) .
First of all,
please launch a '''standalone''' version of BaseX: double click on the '''BaseX''' icon , or run the <code>basex</code> script. [[Startup#Standalone| Follow this link]] for more information (or check out the additional [[Command- Line Options#Standalone|command-line options]] ).
