FTNDB::Config - Fidonet/FTN SQL Database application configuration.
This is in regard to configuration of the application for the administration of databases for Fidonet/FTN related processing. The SQL database engine is one for which a DBD module exists, defaulting to SQLite.
Configuration information that is not provided by the command line options is obtained from a configuration file. That can be defined by setting the "-c" option, which is the path and file name of the configuration file to be used. If that is not defined, it looks for a file named ftndb.cfg in the current directory. The file contains configuration items listed outside of a named section as well as those listed within a named section, and blank lines and lines starting with a "#" are ignored.
The first items in the file are those outside of a named section:
This is the rquired filename and path of a log file.
The Database section in the configuration file has the following keywords:
Database type. This needs to be a database type for which a DBD module exists, the type being the name as used in the DBD module. The default type is SQLite.
Database name. For an SQLite database; this needs to be at least the filename and can also include a path.
Database user. For an SQLite database, this defaults to an empty string as it is not needed for that type of a database.
Database password. For an SQLite database, this defaults to an empty string as it is not needed for that type of a database.
This is an example of the contents of an ftndb.cfg configuration file:
# ftndb.cfg LogFile=/opt/ftndb/ftndb.log [Database] Type=mysql Name=ftndbtst User=sysop Password=ftndbtst
