Hi Anandh,

Greenstone will not work with your existing database. You will need to
create a new Greenstone collection and load all your existing documents
into it.

To do this, I recommend you read through the User's Guide and the
Developer's Guide. Then, start with a few documents and try building a
collection with these. This will show you whether Greenstone is capable of
doing what you want (your documents must be in a format that Greenstone can
work with). If this is successful, you can move onto building a bigger
collection containing all your documents.

Good luck,
