This step by step tutorial is part of article belongs to the [[Getting Started]] Guide.It shows tells 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 commandscommand-line.
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]]).==
The database server handles concurrent [[Transaction_Management|read and write transactions]], [[User Management|manages user permissions]] and [[Logging|logs user interactions]]. It can be started as follows: * Run one of the {{Code|basexserver}} or {{Code|basexserver.bat}} scripts. Add the {{Code|stop}} keyword to gracefully shut down the server.* If you have installed BaseX on ''Windows'', click on the '''BaseX HTTP Server (Start)''' icon, which will start both the HTTP Server used for [[#Web Application|Web Applications]] and the database server. With '''BaseX HTTP Server (Stop)''', you can shut down the server process. By default, the server listens to the port {{Code|1984}}. Pressing {{Code|Ctrl+c}} will close all connections and databases and gracefully shut down the server process. Various [[Command-Line_Options#Server|command-line options]] are available to simplify batch processing. The [[Start_Scripts|start script]] can be adjusted for individual purposes (e.g. if the default memory limit is too restrictive). ==Client== Database clients are started similarly: * Run one of the {{Code|basexclient}} or {{Code|basexclient.bat}} scripts.* Execute the following command: {{Code|java -cp BaseX.jar org.basex.BaseXClient}}* If you have installed BaseX on ''Windows'', click on the '''BaseX Client''' icon. At startup, you need to enter your credentials. The initial passwort of the {{Code|admin}} user is {{Code|admin}}; it can be changed with the {{Code|[[Commands#PASSWORD|PASSWORD]]}} command. For further details, have a look at the [[Command-Line Line_Options#Client|command-line options]] and the [[Start_Scripts|start script]]. =Introduction=
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).
Write Locking: none
