Description Benjamin Brunner 2011-06-27 13:09:26 UTC
smbtaquery should have a ping function to check that the configuration to the database is correct. This enables a better check for the websmbta connect-configuration.
Comment 1 Holger Hetterich 2011-06-28 06:31:35 UTC
I think this bug shall make us rethink about the whole "error-checking" story between smbtaquery and webSMBTA.
Comment 2 Holger Hetterich 2011-06-28 06:32:45 UTC
I do think this is related to bug#8206
Comment 3 Holger Hetterich 2011-09-06 18:39:46 UTC
Bejamin, how would you like to see smbtaquery reporting an error?
Comment 4 Holger Hetterich 2011-09-07 11:46:54 UTC
-t --test-db   does a dry-run , only connects to the db and reports the result.

online help updated, docs updated in master, and assigning to Benjamin for further development of webSMBTA
