Hi Munkhsukh,

> I can't log into administrator's page of GreenStone System.

I sent instructions in my last email regarding your question on how to
access the Admin pages.
Can you tell me at what stage of those instructions things failed for you:
- at what step,
- how did things fail,
- what was the error message if any.

I need to know the details in order to diagnose the problem.

How to view structure of database? pls.

You can set it up to use SQLite or JDBM (java database). By default it
is the simple GDBM format.
This last database format has file extension *.gdb and is the database
format used to store user information for authentication (stored in the
file etc/users.gdb), when you add users through the Admin pages.

To view the structure (contents) of the database, open up a terminal. If
you're on Windows, open a DOS terminal and go into your Greenstone
installation folder. There, type:
setup.bat

Then it will setup the environment for your Greenstone. Now to view the
contents of a *.gdb database file, type:

db2txt [enter/full/path/to/a/gdb/file] > output.txt

Then open output.txt in a text editor and you will see the contents and
structure of the database file.

Note that "[enter/full/path/to/a/gdb/file]" needs to be filled in by you
with the full path to any *.gdb file in your greenstone installation.
For instance, there should be one in each collection directory:
collect/<type-an-existing-collection-name>/index/text/*.gdb
The "users.gdb" file is located in your Greenstone installation's "etc"
folder.

Regards,
Anupamag
