Executing custom SQL statements on the database can result in data loss or corruption. Run this procedure only when requested to do so by X-Formation Support.

To avoid data loss or corruption, we recommend that you always back up your database before performing any operations on the database.

About running a custom SQL script

In rare cases, X-Formation Support may ask you to run a custom SQL script to fix problems with the database.

You can run a custom SQL script on either an embedded database or an external database, as described below. All commands shown in the examples below use the default installation path. Adjust the commands to reflect your environment as necessary.

You can run a custom SQL script using the following procedure:

  1. Create a backup of your database.
  2. Stop License Statistics.
  3. Open a terminal/console in administration mode. 
  4. Go to the License Statistics installation directory.
