Mail::Toaster::Conf - How to configure your Mail::Toaster
The toaster has two main configuration files, toaster.conf and toaster-watcher.conf. On most platforms, both of these files live in /usr/local/etc. Make changes to these files to customize your Mail::Toaster build.
The toaster has two main configuration files, toaster.conf and toaster-watcher.conf. On FreeBSD, both of these files live in /usr/local/etc.
The reason for having two config files is security. The toaster-watcher.conf file is available only to programs with root privileges (toaster-watcher.pl, toaster_setup.pl). This is because passwords and other security sensitive information is stored in that file.
toaster-watcher.conf controls options relating to:
- where files are kept on your particular server
- settings related to how the toaster is built
- what programs and options are installed
- where programs and run files are installed
- run time parameters used to configure daemons
- how the toaster's logs should be processed.
toaster.conf is for everything else (mailadmin, maillogs)
