basexserver - XML database system and XPath/XQuery processor (server mode)


basexserver [-cdinpSz] [stop]


basexserver starts the server mode of the native XML database system basex(1) on default
port 1984.


A short description of option can be obtained from

$ basexserver -h

or by browsing http://docs.basex.org/wiki/Startup_Options#BaseX_Server


On first startup a user 'admin' with default password 'admin' exists (make sure to change

Admin permissions are needed to execute one of the following processes.

· Creating user 'test' with password 'test':

> CREATE USER test test

As global permissions valid options are 'none', 'read', 'write', 'create' and 'admin'.

· Revoking all global permissions from user 'test':

> GRANT none TO test

Valid local permissions are 'none', 'read' and 'write'.

· Granting write permission on database 'factbook' to user 'test':

> GRANT write ON factbook TO test

Note: Local permissions overwrite global permissions. As a consequence, the 'test' user
will only be allowed to access (i.e., read and write) the 'factbook' database. If no local
permissions are set, the global rights are inherited.

· Showing global permissions:


· Showing local permissions on database 'factbook':

> SHOW USERS ON factbook

· Dropping of user 'test':

> DROP USER test

Further details on user management are to be found in the BaseX Documentation Wiki
