INNCHECK(8)									      INNCHECK(8)

       inncheck - check inn configuration and database files.

       inncheck [ -a ] [ -v ] [ -pedantic ] [ -f ] [ -perm ] [ -noperm ] [ file=value | file ]

       Inncheck  examines  various  configuration  files  and databases and verifies things about
       them. Things verified depend on the file being checked, but generally are things like per-
       missions, ownership, syntax errors in config files etc.

       Inncheck  does  not  make  changes  to  any files -- it just reports what it thinks may be
       wrong, and it is up to the operator to fix the problem.

       The set of files checked may be restricted by using  file  or  file=value  arguments.  For
       example,  putting incoming.conf causes only the incoming.conf(5) file to be checked. Using
       incoming.conf=/tmp/incoming.conf on the command line will cause inncheck  to  only  verify
       the incoming.conf file, and it will perform the checks on the file /tmp/incoming.conf file
       instead of the default one.

       Valid values for file are:


       -a     If any ``file'' value or ``file=value'' pairs (see below) are given, then  normally
	      only  the  files they refer to are checked. Use the ``-a'' flag to specify that all
	      files should be checked regardless. In this case the form file=value  will  be  the
	      more useful.

       -v     Use the ``-v'' option to get more verbose output.

	      Use  the	``-pedantic''  option  to  get reports on things that are not necessarily
	      wrong, but may indicate a bad configuration -- such as inn.conf(5) missing a key.

       -f     Use the ``-f'' flag to have inncheck print the appropriate  chown/chgrp/chmod  com-
	      mand  necessary  to  fix a problem that it reports.  Any other output lines will be
	      prefixed with a ``#'' character to make the output be  valid  input  for	a  shell.
	      Note that the ``-perm'' flag must be used as well when using this flag.

       -perm  Inncheck	checks all files for permission problems.  If the ``-perm'' flag is used,
	      then only the files specified by the file or file=value command line arguments will
	      be checked for problems other than permission problems.

	      To  avoid  doing any checking of file permissions or ownership, use the ``-noperm''

       To have inncheck check all files for syntax and permission problems simply:


       To have inncheck check all files for permission problems and to verify the syntax  of  the
       active and incoming.conf files do:

	      inncheck -perm active incoming.conf

       To have inncheck check the test newsfeeds file in /var/tmp/newsfeeds.testing, do:

	      inncheck newsfeeds=/var/tmp/newsfeeds.testing

       To have inncheck check all the files as it normally does, but to specify a different loca-
       tion for the newsfeeds file, so:

	      inncheck -a newsfeeds=/var/tmp/newsfeeds.testing

       If the ``-f'' and ``-perm'' options are used together, along with ``-a'' or some  ``file''
       or  ``file=value''  arguments  that refer to a file with a syntax problem, then the output
       will no longer be valid input for a shell.
