step by step tutorial is part of the [[Getting Started]] Guide.It shows you how to run BaseX in client-server mode from a terminal. You can copy and paste all commands to get them running on your machine. After you finished this tutorial, you will be familiar with the basic administration of BaseX. Visit the [[Commands|commands section]] for a complete list of database commands.
First, launch a '''Server ''' and '''Client''' instance of BaseX: double click on the '''BaseX Server/Client''' icons, or run the <code>basexserver</code> and <code>basexclient</code> scripts. [[Startup#BaseX Server|Follow this link]] for more information (or check out the additional [[Command-Line Options#BaseX Server|command-line options]]).
Line Client ==
The BaseX command-line client provides similar features to the [[Command-Line Client|standalone client]]. The major difference is that all commands will be executed by the BaseX server instance. As a consequence, paths/URIs to resources need to be resolvable by the server (file contents will not be transfered to the server).
