Creating a Harmony Database on GNU/Linux

The first step to creating a Harmony database server is to create the database's file structure on the machine that will be used as the server. You can accomplish this by running the create_usa_db script from Harmony's bin directory.

The basic database file structure is in the USA_DB directory. However, this is not where scene data is stored. If you want the database server to be able to host scene data, you can also create an empty scene data storage space alongside your database file structure.

NOTE: The following steps only indicate how to create a database file structure using the create_usa_db script. If you prefer, you can create the database file structure and enable the database server daemon simultaneously using the Harmony installation script—see Installing the Database Server Daemon on GNU/Linux
