init - Initialize a new Gerrit server installation
'java' -jar gerrit.war 'init'
Creates a new Gerrit server installation, interactively prompting
for some basic setup prior to writing default configuration files
into a newly created `$site_path`.
If run in an existing `$site_path`, init will upgrade some resources
as necessary.
Run in batch mode, skipping interactive prompts. Reasonable
configuration defaults are chosen based on the whims of
the Gerrit developers.
If during a schema migration unused objects (e.g. tables, columns)
are detected they are *not* automatically dropped, but only a list of
SQL statements to drop these objects is provided. To drop the unused
objects these SQL statements have to be executed manually.
Don't automatically start the daemon after initializing a
newly created site path. This permits the administrator
to inspect and modify the configuration before the daemon
is started.
Location of the gerrit.config file, and all other per-site
configuration data, supporting libraries and log files.
This command can only be run on a server which has direct
connectivity to the metadata database, and local access to the
managed Git repositories.
