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 permissions,  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   hosts.nntp   causes   only  the
   hosts.nntp(5) file to be checked. Using  hosts.nntp=/tmp/hosts.nntp.tst
   on  the  command line will cause inncheck to only verify the hosts.nntp
   file, and it will perform the checks on the file  /tmp/hosts.nntp  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

   -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 command 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

   -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'' option.


   To have inncheck check all files for  syntax  and  permission  problems


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

          inncheck -perm active hosts.nntp

   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 location 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
