ddupdate.conf - Man Page

ddupdate configuration file.


The ddupdate.conf file holds default values for all ddupdate(8) options. Since ddupdate normally is invoked without command line parameters, this file then represents the used option values.

Basic File Format

The file is formatted according to the rules use by the python3 configparser module. Basically, this is a leading [update] line followed by by key = value lines. The key represents the command line option, and value the value of said option.

The actual options available are documented in ddupdate(8).

Extended Format for Multiple Hosts

File has experimental support for updating multiple services. This is done using multiple [hostname] sections. The hostname is an arbitrary string without whitespace. Each section has the same syntax as the Basic File Format [update] section.
