ovsqlite-server - Sole owner of the ovsqlite database
The ovsqlite-server daemon is the only program that opens the overview
SQLite database. It accepts connections from the other parts of INN that want
to operate on overview data (innd, nnrpd, expireover,
This daemon must therefore be started before any other process can
access the overview database. ovsqlite-server is normally invoked
automatically by rc.news when starting the news system.
- ovsqlite-server normally puts itself into the background, points
its standard output and error to log files, and disassociates itself from
the terminal. Using -d prevents all of this, resulting in log
messages being written to the standard error output; this is generally
useful only for debugging.

- The SQLite database file.
- Stores the PID of the server process while it's running.
- When Unix-domain sockets are available, the server binds its listening
socket to this path.
- When Unix-domain sockets aren't available, the server binds its
listening socket to a dynamic TCP port on the IPv4 loopback interface and
stores the port number in this file.
