SYNOPSIS

mydns [-b, --background] [-c, --conf=filename] [-d, --debug] [-D, --database=dbname] [-h, --host=hostname] [-p, --password[=password]] [-u, --user=username] [-v, --verbose] [--create-tables] [--dump-config] [--debug-<module>[=<debug_level>]] [--help] [--version]

DESCRIPTION

mydns is a SQL-based DNS server.

OPTIONS

-b, --background Run in the background, as a daemon.

-c, --conf=filename Read configuration from filename instead of the default (/usr/local/etc/mydns.conf). Consult mydns.conf(5) for information about configuring mydns.

-d, --debug Output huge amounts of diagnostic text while running. This option is only available if MyDNS was configured with the --enable-debug option.

-D, --database=dbname Use the database called dbname.

-h, --host=hostname Connect to database server at hostname.

-p, --pass=password Supply password when connecting to the database server. If the password argument is omitted, it will be prompted on the tty.

-u, --user=username Use username when connecting to the database server.

-v, --verbose Enable verbose output while running.

--create-tables Write CREATE TABLE statements suitable for creating the tables used by mydns to the standard output and exit.

--dump-config Read the current configuration (if any). Dump all possible configuration options to the standard output, with current values filled in. For options not presently configured, the internal defaults will be used. Output is in mydns.conf format, which is handy for creating a mydns.conf template.

--debug-<module>[=<debug-level> Switch on debug for a particular module and set the debug level if given.

--help Display program help and exit.

--version Output version number and exit.

FILES

/usr/local/etc/mydns.conf
The default location of the configuration file. (See mydns.conf(5))
