Database questions
Hi folks

I'm kinda new to this so here's a few things that I'm not clear on:

1. What database formats can I use in DBMan?
2. Do I just upload a database to the server with it's usual file extension and adjust the delimiter option in the .cfg file?
3. Is it ok to start with a blank database and build it up manually?

Thanks in advance

1) Flat file...the regular version of DBMAN uses flat files with the .db extension. Flat files = text files.

2) You simply use the .db file and make changes in the .cfg file to your server configurations and also what fields you want to use in DBMAN via the %db_def hash section.

3) Yes...and that is the best approach.
