Maintenance script "setup­Store.php"Maintenance script "setupStore.php" example (--delete parameter)

The following command deletes an existing Storage Engine used with Semantic MediaWiki. Usually the --delete parameter is chosen if you either want to deinstall Semantic MediaWiki or if you would like to migrate from one store to another one, e.g. from a relational database to a RDF database. In the latter case you also use the --backend parameter to specify which of the existing backends should be deleted.
