Configuring the Server


To configure the TurboDB server

1.On systems running Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 it is possible to click on the TurboDB Service icon in the system tray to open the TurboDB Server Configuration window. With Windows Vista and above it is necessary to use TurboDB 6 Service Manager attached with the installation. Start this tool and establish an online connection with the TurboDB server service. Afterwards click on "Configure the service..." to open the TurboDB Server Configuration window.
2.Specify a home directory for the server. This is the directory, where the log files will be located and where new databases will be created by default.
3.Add at least one database to the server databases. Each database is given by its location (a TurboDB directory database or a TurboDB database file) and a name. The name will be used in the client to specify the database it wants to connect to.
The location can contain the $(HOME) variable, which represents the current server home directory, i.e. $(HOME)\MyDB is a valid server-side database location. The variable makes it easier to rename or move the server directories.
4.Set the logging level to the desired value. Log messages below the defined level are not written to the log file.
5.Determine the number of threads in the server. There should be one thread per one to five client applications depending on the intensity of their database access.
6.Close the TurboDB Server Configuration.
