ONE Active Server Pages Product Home Page Developer Site Version


Enabling Database Tools

Sun ONE Active Server Pages includes two database tools: Sun ONE ASP Database Publisher (Database Publisher), and Sun ONE ASP Database Management System (DBMS).

Database Publisher is a client/server application that enables a Microsoft Access database running on Windows to be published to a MySQL database running on UNIX or Linux (with Sun ONE ASP installed). DBMS is a database administration system for MySQL, enabling MySQL databases to be administered from a user-friendly administration console instead of strictly from the command line.

Both Database Publisher and DBMS are enabled and administered from the Tools page in the Sun ONE ASP Administration Console.

To enable or disable database tools

  1. Open the Administration Console by using the following URL:

  2. http://[HOSTNAME]:[PORT]

    where [HOSTNAME] is the hostname of the Web server configured to run with Sun ONE ASP, and [PORT] is the port on which the Administration Console is running (5100 by default).

    The Server Management page displays.

  3. In the left navigation pane, click Tools.

  4. The Tools page displays.

  5. Click the Enable check box to select or clear (enable or disable) the tools as desired.

  6. When finished, click Save to save your changes, or Cancel to revert to the settings that were last saved.

  7. It is not necessary to restart the ASP Server.
