ODBC Driver for xBase works under control of an ODBC driver manager. ODBC driver manager is not distributed along with our driver and must be installed separately.
ODBC Driver for xBase is compatible with 2 ODBC driver managers:
In case when using other ODBC driver managers, ODBC Driver for xBase will be installed, but it will require manual modification of configuration files of these managers.
To install the driver, you should download the archive containing installation files, unpack and run installation with root privileges. See the detailed description of these steps below:
tar -xf devartodbcxbase-linux.tar
To add/update the xbase.lic file to an already installed driver, you need to create/replace this file in the directory with the installed driver, and save the new activation key to it.
Driver is installed successfully.
After the driver is installed, two DSNs with the names DEVART_XBASE_x64 and DEVART_XBASE_x86 are created. You can use them to test connection with XBASE server, we will use DEVART_XBASE_x86 as an example. Now perform the following steps:
Database=<the path to the folder that contains the database files> Format=<the used DBF format>
isql -v DEVART_XBASE_x86
