NAME ^

wiki-toolkit-setupdb - Set up a database storage backend for Wiki::Toolkit.

SYNOPSIS ^

  # Set up or update the storage backend, leaving any existing data
  # intact. Useful for upgrading from old versions of Wiki::Toolkit to
  # newer ones with more backend features.

  wiki-toolkit-setupdb --type postgres
                       --name mywiki \
                       --user wiki  \
                       --pass wiki \
                       --host 'db.example.com'

  # Clear out any existing data and set up a fresh backend from scratch.

  wiki-toolkit-setupdb --type postgres
                       --name mywiki \
                       --user wiki  \
                       --pass wiki  \
                       --force-preclear
