Delete a Database and All its Documents

You can delete an IDOL Content component database and all the documents that it contains either by sending a DREREMOVEDBASE action, or by using the IDOL Admin interface.

Delete a Database and All its Documents by Sending an Action

You can delete an IDOL Content component database and all the documents that it contains by sending a DREREMOVEDBASE action (case sensitive) from your Web browser:

http://ContentHost:indexPort/DREREMOVEDBASE?DREDbName=databaseName

where:

ContentHost is the IP address or host name of the machine on which the IDOL Content component is installed.
indexPort is the IDOL Content component index port (specified as IndexPort in the [Server] section of the IDOL Content component configuration file).
databaseName is the name of the database that you want to delete. The documents in this database are deleted as well.

For example:

http://MyHost:20001/DREREMOVEDBASE?DREDbName=Archive

This action uses port 20001 to delete the Archive database and all documents that it contains from the IDOL Content component on the machine with host name MyHost.

NOTE:

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

Delete a Database and All its Documents by using IDOL Admin

Use the following procedure to delete a database and all its documents by using the IDOL Admin interface.

To delete a database and all its documents by using IDOL Admin

  1. In the Control menu, click Databases.
  2. In the Database Control column, click Delete database next to the database that you want to delete.

    The Delete Database dialog box opens.
