The DBPlug works by processing a file named *.dbi in the collection's
import directory, and reads that as a config file.
There should be an example .dbi config file in
which you can copy and modify for your particular details. It has
lots of comments, but only in English at the moment, I'm afraid.
It might require a bit of perl knowledge and a bit of SQL knowledge to
successfully use the plugin.
Perl's DBI interface means you can use (roughly) the same perl code
to access databases of various types. You also need to load a specific
perl module for your particular backend. For example, for postgres, I
needed to add
to the file.
Perl's documentation for "DBI" lists the following back-end drivers:
