       mydns - SQL-based Internet name daemon.


       mydns  [-b,  --background]  [-c,  --conf=filename]  [-d,  --debug] [-D,
       --database=dbname] [-h,  --host=hostname]  [-p,  --password[=password]]

       mydns is a SQL-based DNS server.


       -b, --background
              Run in the background, as a daemon.

       -c, --conf=filename
              Read  configuration  from  filename  instead  of   the   default
              (/etc/mydns.conf).   Consult mydns.conf(5) for information about
              configuring mydns.

       -d, --debug
              Output huge amounts of  diagnostic  text  while  running.   This
              option  is  only  available  if  MyDNS  was  configured with the
              --enable-debug option.

       -D, --database=dbname
              Use the database called dbname.

       -h, --host=hostname
              Connect to database server at hostname.

       -p, --pass=password
              Supply password when connecting to the database server.  If  the
              password argument is omitted, it will be prompted on the tty.

       -u, --user=username
              Use username when connecting to the database server.

       -v, --verbose
              Enable verbose output while running.

              Write  CREATE  TABLE statements suitable for creating the tables
              used by mydns to the standard output and exit.

              Read the current configuration  (if  any).   Dump  all  possible
              configuration  options  to  the  standard  output,  with current
              values filled in.  For options  not  presently  configured,  the
              internal defaults will be used.  Output is in mydns.conf format,
              which is handy for creating a mydns.conf template.

       --help Display program help and exit.

              Output version number and exit.
