Setting Up Database Servers on macOS

The database server controls all interactions with the contents of the Toon Boom Harmony 15.0 database. It processes all requests to open, read or update files, keeping track of files that are locked so others cannot edit them.

If you already have a database set up from a previous installation of Toon Boom Harmony 15.0, you DO NOT need to set up the database server, startup items, or register console application in the path. However, if you are upgrading from a previous version, you need to install the startup items and register console applications in the path. For new installations of Harmony, you must install all of them.
