NAME

       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 overriden on the command line, as may the prompts.

              Overwrite database_out file

       -f, --force
              Force overwrite of database with new database

       -d, --database
              Specify alternate database file

       -b, --background
              Run in the background (will mail any errors to aide.conf  MAILTO
              or root)
