FBExecacts as a broker between FrontBase databases running on your computer and client software running on your computer or over the network. One instance of
FBExecshould be running.
When you install FrontBase, your computer will be set up so that
FBExecis launched at startup. To make sure that
FBExecis running on a UNIX-based installation, enter the following in a terminal session:
ps axc | grep FBExec
FBExecis running, the system should reply with something like:
374 ? S 0:00 FBExec
375 ? S 0:00 FBWebEnabler
FBExecis not running, you should start it as follows (assuming you have added
FrontBase/binto your $PATH):
Be sure to include the ampersand ("&") at the end so that the task doesn't end with your terminal session.
If, however, you are running FrontBase on Windows NT, you can use the Task Manager to check whether
FBExecis running. If it is not running, go to the Service Manager and start it.
FBExecshould have been installed as a service so that it would start on system startup.
