Server Quick Start

The FairCom Server is designed for ease of use with minimal administration. This is different from other database server products, which require extensive setup, administration, and support.

To make the FairCom Server operational requires virtually no effort:

  1. Install
  2. Execute and Run!


Follow the installation instructions provided for your specific operating system(s) in the chapter titled FairCom Server Installation.


Execute the faircom executable (faircom.exe on Windows). This runs the FairCom Server with the default settings.

That’s all it takes to get your server up and running.

While the FairCom Server runs properly right out-of-the-box, the rest of this guide details the installation, operation, and optional configuration settings available to the Server Administrator. FairCom recommends using the available security options, establishing regular data backup procedures, and optimizing the server configuration for your environment to maximize performance.

See Introduction for an overview of the content of this guide.

For programmers: Additional information regarding programmatic features of the FairCom Server are discussed in the FairCom DB Programmer’s Reference Guide.
