CHOOSE%20DATABASE%20LINK.JPGDatabase Operation and configuration

GeelongWeb has a very powerful database module that can be configured to provide a wide range of functions and facilities very easily.

We can set up databases for a variety purposes and the databases can can almost any desired name. For the purposes of these help files we will assume the database is called "Members"

 

Any databases that have been setup will have a basic link in the left hand administration index.

 

When you initially click on the database ("Members") link, you will see a screen similar to the one below.

 

(Depending on your configuration some features may not be visible in your module)
