Database Administration Overview

The Database administration module is designed to permit a designated responsible individual to manage system access and security via simple but effective password controls. A number of file manipulation utilities are also included in this module for use by the system administrator. These file manipulation utilities are not normally required in regular system operations and individuals without advanced knowledge are discouraged from using them.
