aideinit - create a new AIDE database SYNOPSIS
aideinit [options] DESCRIPTION
aideinit creates a new AIDE database. It will initialize an AIDE database in the default database_out location. It will then prompt you to replace your existing AIDE database. In most cases you will want to check for any problems before doing this. aideinit attempts to automatically detect the correct locations of your database and database_out files based on your aide.conf settings. These settings may be overridden on the command line, as may the prompts. OPTIONS
