DESCRIPTION


db.connect allows the user to set database connection parameters. These parameters are
then taken as default values by modules so that the user does not need to enter the
parameters each time.

The default database backend in GRASS GIS 7 is SQLite.

NOTES


Values are stored in the mapset’s VAR file; the connection is not tested for validity.

The -p flag will display the current connection parameters.

The -c flag will silently check if the connection parameters have been set, and if not
will set them to use GRASS’s default values. (useful in scripts before you attempt to
create a new database table)

To connect a vector map to a database table, use v.db.connect or v.db.addtable.

EXAMPLES


SQLite (default backend)
Local storage:
db.connect -d
db.connect -p
db.tables -p

The SQLite database file is created automatically when used the first time.

ODBC
Network storage, database tables stored in database "mydb" (may require the use of
db.login):
db.connect driver=odbc database=mydb
db.login user=myname [pass=secret]
db.connect -p
db.tables -p

PostgreSQL
Network storage, database tables stored in database "mydb" (may require the use of
db.login):
db.connect driver=pg database="host=myserver.itc.it,dbname=mydb"
db.login user=myname [pass=secret]
db.connect -p
db.tables -p

PostgreSQL with different port
Network storage, database tables stored in database "mydb" (may require the use of
db.login):
db.connect driver=pg database="host=myserver.itc.it,dbname=mydb,port=6666"
db.login user=myname [pass=secret]
db.connect -p
db.tables -p

MySQL (local connection)
Local storage (db.login may not be needed):
db.connect driver=mysql database=mydb
db.login user=myname [pass=secret]
db.connect -p
db.tables -p

MySQL (external server)
Network storage, database tables stored in database "mydb" (may require the use of
db.login):
db.connect driver=mysql database="host=myserver.itc.it,dbname=mydb"
db.login user=myname [pass=secret]
db.connect -p
db.tables -p

DBF (local, not recommended)
Local storage (the dbf/ subdirectory in the mapset must exist or must be created by the
user):
db.connect driver=dbf database=’$GISDBASE/$LOCATION_NAME/$MAPSET/dbf/’
db.tables -p
