Delete a Database and All its Documents
You can delete an IDOL server database and all the documents it contains by sending a DREREMOVEDBASE action (case sensitive) from your Web browser:
http://IDOLhost:indexPort/DREREMOVEDBASE?DREdbname=databaseName
where,
 
is the IDOL server index port (specified as IndexPort in the IDOL server configuration file [Server] section).
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 server machine with host name MyHost.
