DESCRIPTION

This describes the configuration file for the GoFish gopher server. GoFish does not need a configuration file to run. The configuration file adds flexibility for either binary distributions or running two gopher servers on seperate ports and directories.

This file is also read by the mkcache program to get the root, hostname, and port entries.

FILE FORMAT

The GoFish configuration file is a simple ascii text file with option = data pairs. All lines not starting in an alphabetic (a-z) character are considered comments. All options are case sensitive.

The example in the example section shows the options with their default values (which may be changed at compile time).

OPTIONS

root the root of the server directory.
logfile
  the file to log GoFish hits in
pidfile
  where to put the pidfile at runtime tmpdir directory to put temporary files in. Relative to root-dir.
mimefile
  the location of the Apache style mime.types file
host host name
listen-address
  address to listen on.
port what port number to listen on. 70 is the gopher port
user the username of the gopher user
uid, gid
  the numeric user and group ids of the gopher user
virtual_hosts
  if set to 1, GoFish will support virtual hosts
combined_log
  If set to 1, GoFish will use combined log format. Else, it defaults to common log format. Note that combined log format has no real meaning for gopher.
no_local
  if set to 1, GoFish will not log accesses from local machines. Local machines are defined as 192.168.x.x and 127.0.0.1. preprocess_cache if set to 1 will dynamically process the .cache file to add host and port if necessary.

EXAMPLE

# GoFish Gopher Server configuration file
root = /var/gopher
logfile = /var/log/gopherd
pidfile = /var/run/gopherd.pid
port = 70
uid = 13
gid = 30
no_local = 1
