- Empty Database (recommended)
This is a Basic database containing one example object within each category, including an Advanced User with all permissions, and a Web User.

- Peter (Advanced User with all permissions)
- Martin (Web User)
- Two Suites

Click ‘Confirm’ to continue. Once the message 'Server Ready' appears in the the farmerswife Server application is ready for example to be accessed by the farmerswife Client application.
