Delete All Documents from a Database

You can delete all documents from an HPE IDOL Server database either by sending a DREDELBASE action, or by using the IDOL Admin interface.

Delete All Documents from a Database by Sending an Action

You can delete all documents from an HPE IDOL Server database by sending a DREDELBASE action (case sensitive) from your Web browser:

http://IDOLhost:indexPort/DREDELDBASE?DREDbName=databaseName

where:

IDOLhost is the IP address or host name of the machine on which HPE IDOL Server is installed.
indexPort is the HPE IDOL Server index port (specified as IndexPort in the [Server] section of the HPE IDOL Server configuration file).
databaseName is the name of the database whose documents you want to delete.

For example:

http://12.3.4.56:20001/DREDELDBASE?DREDbName=Archive

This action uses port 20001 to delete all documents from the Archive database on a machine with the IP address 12.3.4.56.

NOTE:

This index action does not complete if the configuration file is read-only.
