Similar to the Web server, the built-in SQL server in 4D v11 SQL can be enabled in a variety of ways:

Automatically launch SQL server at startup:

-Go to the preferences.
-Select the theme SQL.
-Enable the checkbox "Launch SQL Server at Startup".

The next time 4D starts, the SQL server will be running.

Manually in the Design environment:

-Select "Start SQL Server" item from the Run menu.

Programmatically starting the server:

-Execute the command START SQL SERVER in your method.

When running 4D Server another way to start the SQL Server is from the 4D Server Administration window.
Select the SQL Server tab and click on Start SQL Server.
