You specify the database path in the connection string that the client
sends to the server. Or you define an alias name and corresponding
database path in the server's alias.conf file and then use the alias
name in the connection string.

The server will try to connect to any file you specify and then throw
an error if the file is not a database or cannot be accessed.
